There are some functions in pref.h that I couldn't find their
implementation I think they are not implemented, Right ?

extern void subsurface_open_conf(void);
extern void subsurface_set_conf(const char *name, const char *value);
extern void subsurface_set_conf_bool(const char *name, bool value);
extern void subsurface_set_conf_int(const char *name, int value);
extern void subsurface_unset_conf(const char *name);
extern const char *subsurface_get_conf(const char *name);
extern int subsurface_get_conf_bool(const char *name);
extern int subsurface_get_conf_int(const char *name);
extern void subsurface_flush_conf(void);
extern void subsurface_close_conf(void);

Are those the accessor functions you were talking about ? also there is
some macros defined in preferences.cpp they do a similar job to these
functions, this is confusing me a little bit.

I can work on this, But I don't understand how the whole thing is supposed
to work.
