Summary: New module: miniconf

Initial Comment:
Find enclosed a new data persistence module: miniconf,
that basically allows the casual creation and reading
of configuration files and similar simple data sets.

I ended-up using part of this code in many projects I
did in Python (such as adesklets), and many other
fellow developers borrowed it from me, so I though it
could be nice to have it as a part of the standard library.

So I cleaned it up, re-factored it as a simple,
standalone module, and here it is, complete with
documentation and its test module.

Find enclosed a patch against svn trunck (Python 2.5b2,
revision 50794). It changes nothing to the tree,
besides adding a one-liner to Doc/lib/lib.tex to
reference the new documentation.

The module also works untouched on Python 2.4.3; I will
be glad to provide a patch against any other tree if
you want me too; all comments are of course welcomed.

Have you published this on the Python Cheese Shop? This
might be the more appropriate way to make this module known
to other Python developers since there's no way to include
it in 2.5 any more.
