Presumably this array will reflect the order the source file told us
about the keys and their values; I wonder if the <filename, lineno>
information we already have can be used (or unified) with it?

Is the "when the last variable in a section disappears, make the
section header go away, with sensible handling of comments around
it" part of this GSoC project?  If so, I suspect that the feature
would also want to know where things appear in the original file, so
this data structure may play a role there, too.
