This is a pain to work with unless you really need something the size of
the apache configuration files, in my experience.

This is good stuff. It just works, in one line, and lets you put pretty
much any format configuration file in place.
Do decide on a style, though, and use that -- rather than the "guess"
stuff -- in production code.
You can't use this to save back your configuration file.

This is quite good.

This is also pretty good, for simple configuration files.
It does let you save back, as I recall, the configuration file.
