"""Configuration file parser.

A setup file consists of sections, lead by a "[section]" header,
and followed by "name: value" entries, with continuations and such in
the style of rfc822.

The option values can contain format strings which refer to other
values in the same section, or values in a special [DEFAULT] section.
For example:

    something: %(dir)s/whatever

would resolve the "%(dir)s" to the value of dir.  All reference
expansions are done late, on demand.

Intrinsic defaults can be specified by passing them into the
ConfigParser constructor as a dictionary.


ConfigParser -- responsible for for parsing a list of
                configuration files, and managing the parsed database.


    __init__(defaults=None) -- create the parser and specify a
                               dictionary of intrinsic defaults.  The
                               keys must be strings, the values must
                               be appropriate for %()s string
                               interpolation.  Note that `name' is
                               always an intrinsic default; it's value
                               is the section's name.

    sections() -- return all the configuration section names, sans DEFAULT

    options(section) -- return list of configuration options for the named

    read(*filenames) -- read and parse the list of named configuration files

    get(section, option, raw=0) -- return a string value for the named
				   option.  All % interpolations are
				   expanded in the return values, based on
				   the defaults passed into the constructor
				   and the DEFAULT section.

    getint(section, options) -- like get(), but convert value to an integer

    getfloat(section, options) -- like get(), but convert value to a float

    getboolean(section, options) -- like get(), but convert value to
				    a boolean (currently defined as 0
				    or 1, only)
