The docs for Python 3.2 say that p = configparser.ConfigParser(interpolation=None) disables interpolation.  Instead it gives this traceback when calling

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.2/", line 688, in read
    self._read(fp, filename)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.2/", line 1081, in _read
  File "/usr/lib/python3.2/", line 1091, in _join_multiline_values
    options[name] = self._interpolation.before_read(self,
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'before_read'

The attached patch should fix it.

Thanks.  Could you also add a test?

I added a test but I am not too familiar with the Python test suite.  Please check if the "test_init_takes_interpolation_none" test is necessary because the test suite also fails without it if my patch is not applied.  Feel free to remove it if it is superfluous.

Thanks, the configparser maintainer will review your patch.

Łukasz, you may want to use assertIsNone when you commit.
