FYI -- look in the Attic of libsvn_subr:

  http://subversion.tigris.org/source/browse/subversion/subversion/libsvn_subr/Attic/

I wrote a config-file parser just like this last summer for
Subversion, but then tossed it. It's already in our tree. And it
parses config files exactly like our build.conf, exactly like win32
.ini files. And there's even a test for it in libsvn_subr/parsetest/.
It just returns a hash of hashes; the first hash key is the name of
the [section], and it's value is another hash that contains all the
key:val pairs.

I'm only pointing this out because adding a whole library for this
might be heavy-handed. It might be easier just to move svn_parse.[ch]
back into libsvn_subr. But then maybe your library does much more. :-)
