config-py version 1.0 has been released and is available at SourceForge.  
is the initial release of a Python module for reading python based user
configuration files to control script execution.  (It is a more powerful
alternative to Python's ConfigParser module).  The long term goal is to 
this module for eventual inclusion in the standard Python distribution.

Module Description

This python module provides a simple, but extremely flexible and powerful
method of controlling python script execution by use of configuration 
stored in user configuration files.  This module is a more powerful
alternative to the ConfigParser module already available in the standard
Python distribution.

The standard ConfigParser module parses text based user configuration files
and provides access to that information.  This module reads python based
configuration files and provides access to the python objects contained
within.  In addition, this module supports hierarchical organization of the
settings within the configuration files so that settings may be accessed 
keys specified by the user from the command line or by other means.  By use 
python based configuration files, this module provides a simple solution to
most configuration problems but also has the flexibility to solve the most
complex configuration issues.
