I think the coder actually has to do a little bit from time to time - PHP 
is good but not _that_ good.

Just out of curiosity, what do you think would be the algorithm for 
_writing to_ an ini file? How many sections does it have? What are they 
called? What is the structure of the entries allowed in each section? How 
many entries can each section have? What are the possible range of values 
for any entry? Rhetorical question, don't tell me.

What I am saying here is that it is a lot easier to parse a file given 
its basic structure, than it is to create a file based on that structure 
but with a huge, almost infinite, number of possible entries.

In other words, you'll have to roll your own, using the file functions.
