Subject Re: [Configuration] IniFile

What about a single class instead, IniConfiguration or 
WindowsConfiguration (I tend to prefer the later) extending 
BasePathConfiguration with new methods:

void load();
void save();
List getSections();
Configuration getSection(String name); // delegating to subset
void setProperty(String section, String key, Object value);
void getProperty(String section, String key);
