If it is not specific to INI files and can be used generally for many 
things, maybe it should be pulled out into some other unit so people do 
not think it is just INI file related?

Also, ini files are file based, so could it be used without using files 
on the disk and used as a in memory list only?
Any time someone sees "ini file" they think "files on the hard drive", 
and could be turned off using this, when in fact it could be just what 
they need.
