In this case, JSON seems like an obvious choice for a config format :-P

Personally, I try to just use eval(read(open(CONFFILE))) whenever
remotely possible , guarded against surprises of course.

The ConfigParser module is quite unpleasant IMO.  Particularly because the
natural structure to hold such information is either a dictionary or an
object with named fields, but that's not what ConfigParser gives you.
