[RFC] Ini parser

I wonder if there is a problem with a 'standard' ini parser, in that ini
files are not really very standard.
I have seen a lot of ini files with scope (also also use this in some of my
own apps), will I be able to parse these with your parser?
key = value
key2 = value
subkey = value
I notice your interesting delimiters too, I've never seen anything like
that in an ini file before, where did you see that? What makes it standard?
I might like to use something like that if I had thought it was a normal
thing to use in an ini file...
