Hi Daniel,

Working on unrelated code, I found that the iniparse module, which we
ship on our F9 and F11 OSs, knows the ordering of the sections.

   from iniparse import INIConfig
   import os
   c = INIConfig(open(os.path.expanduser('~')+'/.sugar/default/config'))
   list(c) # gives you the sections in order
