Problem is that it merges also array which do not contain
configuration. We need to merge stuff like:

$cfg['A']['B'] = 'something';
$cfg['A']['C'] = 'something';

But we need to avoid merging of 

$cfg['D'] = array('a', 'b');

I do simmilar think in setup.php while generating configuration, by
checking array type. You might want to look at function get_cfg_val.
