Best way to edit config.json from Omnis

Hi everyone,

OK, so if I want to edit the config.json file from Omnis, I could either

    Read it into a text field and use replace() and so on


    Use one of the functions like JSONtoListOrRow to get it into a row 
or list or whatever, do the changes directly by accessing e.g. 
MyJSONConfigRow.TheAttribute and then converting the row/list back into 
JSON and saving the file.

The second option is going to be cleaner, provided it works reliably.  
I'm wondering if anyone has tried it that way.
