I'd say we go for it. At the moment most (if not all) "drop-in replacements" for ConfigParser support this functionality. It's backwards compatible and useful. One might argue than it's more pythonic than getfloat() & co.

I'd also add attribute-like syntax but before I present a patch I'd need #7113, #4686 and #1682942 accepted. The last one is waiting for the first two as well.
