I wrote that before seeing Michael’s reply. Since Georg is +1 too, I can only say: Great, let’s do it!

Right. I don’t know if people using ConfigParser really want to use the interpolation. If we want to give the same name as the module to the best class for people who don’t read docs, I’d prefer renaming RawConfigParser to ConfigParser and SafeConfigParser to SomethingConfigParser.
