modifiable config files in compiled code?

ConfigParser works on linux I'm pretty sure. I just ran Ipython
imported it and loaded a config file.

I don't remember anything in the docs that said otherwise.

I would prefer an xml style config file myself. But I can get by with 
and ini right now. The logging framework seems to me to be the
hairiest configurations and it's able to work in an ini format. If I
need anything fancier than that, I might consider doing it for a
living and getting someone to pay me to compe up with it. :)
