python based configs introduce API and versioning questions and
risk to make things less readable.
When i had custom needs i just wrote a script to generate a tox.ini
file. From my general hacking experience, having configs spelled out
makes things easier to debug and understand for newcomers.
Anyway, I am not totally opposed to python-configs but rather skeptical.
If somebody offers a patch and/or documentation (i.e. spelling out some
hyptothetical examples) i'll review it and see about including or
helping implementing it.
