My $.02: I suspect it might be better to just use XML than configparser as a ZConfig replacement. The config format is a stretch under CP due to the lack of hierarchy. I'm beginning to think the "don't make admins use XML" argument should die. Everybody knows how to edit XML nowadays, and if you need hierarchy, its familiarity is tough to argue with.

Looking at your examples (especially the long one), I find the ZConfig
version much easier to read.

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.

Yes, this was my concern with it, too. Though the decouple spelling
obviously also has advantages as you can configure a server once and
then just refer to this server configuration from several instance
