IMHO Groovy is not Java. Just open a Groovy file in a modern IDE (e.g. 
IntelliJ) and tell me what support do you have for it?

Isn't the Jakarta-commons Digester not good enough?
Besides, what's so complicated to make a simple and verbose XML 
configuration (so that everyone understands it)?
A simple XML structure can very easily get a simple Swing or Web GUI, so 
that everyone can edit/change the configuration without too many errors.

Just my 2 cents,
