It can be other things, such as a numerical value or a filename, it is
whatever data the configuration option is expecting to get.

You can only put 1 condition in the test, and you can't have rules that
point to more rulesets. Sorry, but that's a limitation of the configuration
engine I have written. I know it's not perfect, maybe expanding its
abilities is something I should look at for the next version, so you can at
least have "and" in conditions, which would solve this problem.
