Thanks Kristoffer,

I didn't know about both solutions. However I was thinking about the syntax:
We have "commands to add settings (primitive, property, location, ...),
commands to display settings (show),  commands to change settings (edit), and
commands to remove settings (delete).
Obviously the biggest asymmetry is between adding and displaying settings.
Mostly because you need the type for the setting.
What about using a uniform "add type:XXX ..." to add settings. So for setting
a new properties it might replace "property xx=yy" with "add type:property
xx=yy" while changing an existing property could be "edit xx" (with unique
names the type for edit is obvious) or "set type:property xx=yy". A question is
whether to use separate "add" for new settings and "set" for changing existing

Just some thoughts on the topic...
