Totally agree. I gave up on a patch a while back that let you store http
auth information in config files simple because there was not a clean to
represent the info in python config format. It gets messy when you want
to include a uri with the "protol:" bit. Even worse than the extra
split, the parser eliminates duplicates after splitting on :

It would also be nice to add some form of #include in the config system.
