One thing that bothered me once:

I want to be able to have something like:

tag = 1
tag = 2

And be able to retrieve ("section", "tag") -> ["1", "2"].
Can be awfully useful for things that make sense several time. 
Perhaps there should be two functions, one that reads a single-tag and
one that reads a multi-tag?

File format: I'm sure I'm going to get yelled at, but why don't we 
make it XML? Hard to edit, yadda, yadda, but you can easily write a
special purpose widget to edit XConfig (that's what we'll call the DTD)

hopefull-yet-not-naive-ly y'rs, Z.
