	@header SystemConfiguration
	@discussion The System Configuration framework provides access to the
		data used to configure a running system.  The APIs provided
		by this framework communicate with the configd daemon.

		The configd daemon manages a dynamic store reflecting the
		desired configuration settings as well as the current state
		of the system.  The daemon provides a notification mechanism
		for processes that need to be aware of changes made to the
		data.  Lastly, the daemon loads a number of bundles (or
		plug-ins) that monitor low-level kernel events and, through
		a set of policy modules, keep the state data up to date.
