Skip Montanaro has proposed the creation of a ConfigParserShootout
page on the Wiki. Shouldn't this discussion be moved there?

BTW I have my own ideas on the topic... and I'm willing to put them
there on the Wiki,  if that's the way to go.

And as far as the rest of David's comments -- I agree, let's keep it
simple, and move all data processing stuff out of the library.
