Why I cannot use tuple as application env key?

I use application:get_env only once (in application callback module during start/2), to move config from application env to where it is used.
At this time it is possible to change layout/keys as much as needed.

Doing it repeatedly was not something I considered in my suggestion. Sorry.

Best Wishes,
