just of the top of my head, i can think of:
AVOptions allows listing the available options, like for automatically
building a list of available options in a GUI
it allows changing the type int->int64, int->double
it stores default value, min and max
allows access to substructures, one can in some cases move a field
to s substructure
one could dump and load settings of a struct in a generic way not
needing to update the code after fields get added
