Turns out its not quite that simple. Python's config file code
recognizes : as a separator and dups are eliminated.  So doing something
like this won't work cleanly:

realm:http://domain.com = user:pass

I could put the user and path on the left side with a different
separator, and allow the rhs to be a list, but its starting to feel
strained. Any suggestions? I'm assuming that adding another config file
syntax, like xml isn't wanted.
