[Python-Dev] ConfigParser patches

All this talk of a replacement for ConfigParser is all well
and good (and I agree that a more pythonic interface would
be nice)... but. We're under 2 weeks from beta1, and I can't
see this new module being designed, implemented, and committed
before then. Remember, once b1 is out, we're stuck with the
API that we have come up with.

I'd much rather see one or more packages developed alongside
Python - we can then take the best of them (or maybe a merger
of the best ideas for them) for 2.5.

Which leaves David's original question about the two patches.
While CP isn't perfect, and it would be nice to replace it, for
2.4, I don't think these patches make things any worse, and they
add useful functionality (back, in one case) so I'm inclined
towards accepting them.
