I suspect it's because ConfigParser's primary usage is to parse config files, and in a file it may be non-obvious how to mark something as an int/float rather than a string. The reason pungi uses ConfigParser is that prior to using kickstart files we had our own config files. I'm not entirely happy with ConfigParser, but it'd be something of an overhaul to switch to some other config system, and not one I was willing to make at this point. Maybe during F9...You can take a look at the config classes in yum (yum/config.py) it let you define different kind of options types.I've also made a yum-free config.py that takes all the advantages of the yum config file w/o needing the yum-ness of it. you can find it here: http://skvidal.fedorapeople.org/config.py we just used in in func and it's rather handy. -sv
