[Python-Dev] Minor ConfigParser Change

Patches are applied once, but thousands of people read the code in the
standard library each month. The standard library should be as
readable as possible to make it as easy as possible to maintain. It is
just good software development methodology.

Many parts of the standard library are arcane and almost impossible to
understand (see httplib for example) because refactoring changes are
Not done. So if someone wants to improve the code why not let them?
