Better INI parser for Python

iniparse is a INI parser for Python which is - Compatiable with ConfigParser Backward compatible implementations of ConfigParser, RawConfigParser, and SafeConfigParser are included that are API-compatible with the Python standard library. They pass all the unit tests in Python-2.4.4.

- Preserves structure of INI files
  Order of sections & options, indentation, comments, and blank
  lines are preserved as far as possible when data is updated.

- More convenient
  Values can be accessed using dotted notation,
  or using container syntax cfg['user']['name'].

It is very useful for config files that are updated both by users and by programs, since it is very disorienting for a user to have her config file completely rearranged whenever a program changes it. iniparse also allows making the order of entries in a config file significant, which is desirable in applications like image galleries.
