  I want to put a bunch of configuration into a file, and was wondering
if boost::program_options could be used to load it. Looking at the
documentation for program_options, it's easy to load configuration off
of the command line, and then other values for same and additional
configuration parameters from a config file.

  But, what I want to do is have a data file. I want to have a file
that looks like, say:


  And, I'm wondering if I can use program_options::parse_config_file to
load this, or if there's no way for parse_config_file to load things
that aren't specifically entered in to the options_decription as
expected options... Can it load unexpected options? Is there an
iterator that would let me just look at everything that was loaded?
