AFAICT we basically only have "config" in the API paths according to the API 
Viewer. So 'cfg' would be something new, not yet used.
I do like 'cfg' more than 'conf'. Once we dropped support for 'config', we could 
wait a full major release and then move it back? Not sure but 'cfg' is also only 
somewhat nice ;)
