      Description

      <quote>
      The config:type attribute specifies a data type for a setting.
      The defined values for the config:type attribute are:
      base64Binary: 18.2
      boolean: 18.3.2
      datetime: 18.2
      double: 18.2
      int: 18.2
      long: defined by [SQL].
      short: defined by [SQL].
      string: 18.2
      </quote>

      most of the values here refer to types from the XMLSchema-2 specification, but surprisingly, 2 of then ("short", "long") refer to the SQL specification.
      i'm guessing this is probably wrong.
      XMLSchema-2 also specifies "short" and "long" types, so why not use those.

      furthermore, the type "int" refers to 18.2, but it is not actually listed in 18.2.

      (in ODF 1.1 the values were not described at all.)
