Thats what I thought :-), but wouldn't it be "better" to parse only e.g.
".conf" Files?

You say "by mistake" - are there any parsing-changes in the next MS?

E.g. sometimes I do have a working config for a system and if I change
multiple parameters for testing, I just copy the working config to an
other name (.conf.working), so I can switch back very fast to the
working config...
