It is just a hack to implement a "collection".  You have to manually
keep track of the "N" number somewhere or you are going to fetch stale

Using an XML-like API or a Lisp-like one takes care of this, then why
should we go for the crappy and lame?

Well, the gnome-terminal does not have to listen to config changes.
That is entirely optional.  And even if you did listen to them, you
might ignore the changes.
