Dear Config,

https://modules.raku.org/dist/Config:cpan:TYIL

Would you please consider add the following reference to your
web page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INI_file

It gives a wonderful description of INI files. And
there are folks out there that do not realize that INI
files are standardized or how to write them

Many thanks,
-T

If there's a parser for ini that works with Config, I will link to that
particular parser in the README of Config. Linking to random formats that
aren't supported seems like a weird addition to the documentation.

According to modules.raku.org[1], there's three implementations, which are
included in the README already:

- Config::Parser::toml
- Config::Parser::yaml
- Config::Parser::json

I'm currently not planning to write Config::Parser::ini, but I'd gladly welcome
any additional parsers, and will respond to any questions about implementing
one to the best of my capabilities.
