Refactor QA configuration code

Ever since its introduction (sometime before commit cec9845 in September
2007), the QA configuration was stored in a dictionary at module-level
in “qa/qa_config.py”. The configuration was loaded, verified and
evaluated using module-level functions. Since then the configuration has
become more complicated and more functionality has been added. This
patch refactors handling the configuration to use a class and provides

- The configuration is loaded through a class method which also verifies
it for consistency
- Wrapper methods are provided in “qa_config” to not change the
- Unit tests are provided for the new configuration class
- The configuration object is still stored in a module-level variable
and can be retrieved using “GetConfig” (direct access should be
avoided so an uninitialized configuration can be detected)
