It's my fault... sorry... If I were doing it these days cRevStandaloneSettings would be multi-dimensional but that wasn't an option back then... Indeed at the time it was quite common to use commas in array keys to get pseudo multi-dimensional arrays. Because they are accessed using array / custom property set notation it's not a huge issue though. From memory the platform related keys are <platform>,<property>. You can't set the customPropertySet to cRevStandaloneSettings and then use regular property syntax but then again I haven't heard of anybody setting the customPropertySet for about a decade...
