[Distutils] comparison of configuration languages

​Not asking for any change but has anyone looked at libconfig
<http://www.hyperrealm.com/libconfig/libconfig_manual.html>? ​It looks
quite interesting: simple grammar and nesting support. What do you think of

As pointed out, it's a C lib. But as we all like writing tools, it wouldn't
be very hard to write a Python parser for the format.

But it's a bit C-y for my taste, and yet another configure language? Really?
