Also, you can "make it" simplest/standard-est as possible by 
disabling those features. To do that you have to set for example 
'sectionInheritChar' to 0 to disable it. But to nest sections you 
have to use something like that:

key = value
key2 = value

subkey = value

Where dot in second section name is delimeter you've set up.
