Hi Berker, 

It is true, I agree ;-)

But this way ConfigParser works different than xml parsers (for example elementtree from system lib), as when I use elementtree.write it wil create a file with full and valid xml content.

But ConfigParser is "able" ;-) to create file with invalid content (for example (this was my findings) creates duplicated sections.

So it could be a feature request for ConfigParser:
It should be able to write config to a given filename, not only into file object.
(Like xml parser)

Kind regards,
