* Reference bug http://bugs.python.org/issue9406
* Reference documentation at http://docs.python.org/library/configparser.html

The docs list all the specific errors to look out for, but does not mention the base exception class for ConfigParser errors (ConfigParser.Error).  It may be useful to mention it to show the exception heirarchy as well as in the case a user may want to catch all ConfigParser errors generally.
