I would say, and looking at the page linked by Steve confirms this, that there is always a need to read existing config. file, from Windows' .ini files to Java's .properties files and all the variants around.

It is similar to the idea of supporting XML in Lua: not necessarily for internal usage, but just to communicate with the outer world.
