Enable nested keys in plugin configuration

Created: 02/Jun/16 09:27 PM   Updated: 25/May/17 08:21 PM
Component/s: API / Client Library, Engine
Affects Version/s: 3.0.0, 3.0.1
Fix Version/s: 3.0.2, 4.0 Alpha 1

QA Status: Cannot be tested

 Description  « Hide
Config-parsing code already supports nested keys but this feature is explicitly disabled in code for more than one nesting level.
API also supports nested keys, see IConfigEntry::getSubConfig method.
It seems we could safely enable this feature (and there is users asking for it)

Example of nested keys (could be used in plugins.conf):

Config = MyPluginConfig {
  Key1 = Val1
  Key2 = Val2 {
    SubKey = Val
    Subkey2 = {

currently, such configuration is parsed as set of plain keys.

Re-opened due to wrong parsing of nested keys

Strongly speaking, wrong parsing of nested keys is a different issue, but enabling of not working code is a nonsense therefore i decided to not create new ticket.
