[Tutor] embedding lists in configuration files

I am looking for a way to use a plain text configuration file in a
Python program instead of hard-coded values.  The configuration data
currently is in the form of a couple of lists and some triple-quoted

I was looking at the ConfigParser module, but I cannot see how to use
this format to represent lists or triple-quoted strings.  Are there any
other suggestions?  Thanks.
