Yes, because it's a silly format.

I'm all for user-editable config files (I'm a unix guy, after all) but the .ini format is just plain stupid. It needlessly introduces states in the config parsing, confusing both programmers and users.

I dare promise that all config files we ever use will be user-editable ASCII files. But they will not be in .ini format.
