Michael Foord <michael at voidspace.org.uk> added the comment:

It is (very) unfortunate that configparser.ConfigParser should *not* be used and that configparser.SafeConfigParser is the correct class instead.

I would be *in favour* of deprecating ConfigParser and eventually renaming SafeConfigParser back to ConfigParser (leaving SafeConfigParser as an alias).

Now that deprecation warnings are silent by default this should be less of an issue.
