We needn't keep this hypothetical. ViewVC is using (a slightly
modified[*]) Python ConfigParser in this way.
[*] By default, ConfigParser (well, really the RawConfigParser it
subclasses) lowercases option names, which can cause username/group
matching to fail. So ViewVC's code replaces the optionxform method of
ConfigParser with a noop lambda function. (See
for official docs.)
