Great feature, specially for admins that are not so technically inclined o don't want to mess around with config files.

Wouldn't need Full Trust and permissions for the account that's impersonating the Forum App at ISS to edit the config files?

I found a way that does not involve editing the config files (that cause the pool to restart): Storing the settings (changes from the default config values) in separate file inside the folder that already has write access (content)...
This behaviour is already implemented in SiteConfiguration.Current, SiteConfiguration.LoadSettings() and SiteConfiguration.SaveSettings()
