I am not 100% clear on what you want to do?... could you expand a little?

I have found the Repeatable element very useful, although abit combersum 
to use, what with the $el->repeat(x) .. but it works for me.

Are you intending to use a single config file?...you might need to 
dynamically add the hidden elements when building the form.

I guess you could put a delimited value in a hidden field but this seems 
like a rather hacky way to get multiple values into a hidden field.
