Here's the problem - I need someway of getting ConfigParser to take file
objects - which in python 1.5.2 it can't.
I need some safe way of making temp files, which, is not available in
python 1.5.2 (or hell, in 2.2) either.

Subclassing the ConfigParser class was mentioned to me by michael
stenner. If it doesn't cause too much pain it would be possible.
