Hi Christoph,

I've been looking into the something similar as you have recently, from 
what I know it is possible that being said however you still have to 
make the MasterConfig object available at runtime. Also it seems that 
the MasterConfig file is regenerated at Runtime from the master config 
file when a restart is called so it is highly possible that any changes 
you make will be lost.

I would also suggest if want to go down this route to have a look at the 
actual current code for the MasterConfig class, and as you will see the 
properties you set in a dictionary in the master config file are not 
stored in the dictionary but as attributes, and in some cases don't line 
up to the names is the master config file.

However if a developer would like to correct me on the issue, please 
take what they say over what I have written.

Have a good evening
