Is a proposal for using ConfigParser, rather than ZConfig for high-level
This smacks of re-invention for the sake of it. I happen to like ZConfig
a lot. The way it's used in Zope 2 is a little unpleasant, admittedly,
but I think it makes a fine configuration language.
The xml required for the schema is pretty trivial if you're coming from
I must be missing some big reasons why you'd want to use an inferior
config language and rewrite a big chunk of working, battle tested
software, but I guess that's in the proposal..
Anyway, a big -1 from me, especially given the backwards compatibility
issues prople like myself, with MailingLogger and a number of
ZConfig-based, and Dieter, with his NNTP server and doubtless other
things, will face.
Fred, FWIW, I was really really happy to see that generic section go
into the schema, I just haven't had a chance to use it yet...
