New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1611799/preserve-case-in-configparser, somebody
is confused about adjusting ConfigParser.optionxform. The documentation
is indeed confusing, in particular by claiming that you should "set" it
to "str()". Even if you get what is meant by "setting" (i.e. not
"calling"), it's still nonsensical to suggest that it should be set to
an empty string.
