While ZConfig allows you the describe related material together
and without indirections, the ConfigParser format forces you
to introduce indirections and to spread related definitions
over a longer area.

An example: the logger configuration.

In ZConfig:


In ConfigParser:

     handlers = handler1 ... handlern

As locality facilitates readability and understanding,
ZConfig files tend to be easier to read and understand
than ConfigParser ones.
