Wow, I guess there really is no better way to return an associated array from a function or subshell in bash! 🙄
I should probably describe my project with: "Written im pure obfuscated Bash! Obfuscation is not intentional but its impossible to write pure Bash which is not obfuscated."
The whole code should parse a set of config files but it turns out I need a set of options accessable via an associative array.
