Dear Cecil,

I subscribed to late to answer to your top-post in that thread.
I had the same topic for myself in the last months and tried a lot of
things.

In your situation I would prefere the INI-file format, too.

But doen't user 'configparser' for that. As other fellows described
it's a bad solution because option order and comments are not preserved
when writing back. It is a quite incomplete implementation of
human-readable-config files.

Use 'configobj'[1][2] which can be handled very easy, too. You can have
comments and everything you want in there.
