A vote of -0 means I don't want to make a career out of this <wink>.


A -1 vote is a strong objection; I don't have a strong objection here, I see
*any* support for anonymous sections in ConfigParser as complicating the
whole thing for no particular benefit.  OTOH, it won't be a disaster for
Python if some version is accepted, either; I'd just rather it weren't.  Or,
IOW, -0.  That can't be changed unless someone presents a compelling use
case for an anonymous section where making up a section name would be a
believable burden.
