ConfigParser: writes a list but reads a string?

Note that ConfigObj also supports type conversion via the ``validate``
module which comes with it. This validates a config file against an
(optional) ``configspec`` which you supply, and does all the
conversion. It reports any errors it encounters.

Syntax for reading and writing is a standard 'ini-like' format with an
extended syntax for nested sections. The major differences are that you
can have values in the root section, and you should use '=' as the
``keyword = value`` divider.

All the best,
