Buildout uses some small but useful extensions to standard ini file
syntax that helps in complex configurations: simple macros
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zc.buildout#extending-sections-macros) and
a way to add and remove options to list-like values

It would be nice if those two little features were extracted into a
small library that others could use.
