I'm trying to use Python3's configparser in mesact to allow custom ini entries to not be written over but the configparser does not allow duplicate keys so only one HALFILE key is left.

Is there a way around this somehow to load several hal files from one ini entry?

This would really improve the Mesa Configuration Tools flexibility and make it much more user friendly.

And I think I found a clue in an example file that used the line
source somename.hal

And to confirm having this in the ini
[HAL]
HALFILE = filelist.hal

and in my filelist.hal
source main.hal
source io.hal
source custom.hal

works as expected.

Might I humbly suggest that supporting having multiple load line in the INI would be worth the effort.
AXIS,Touchy,GMpccapy, Gscreen and Qtvcp support multiple postgui.hal files.
It makes things much more clear.

it seems you can get configparser to read multiple entries:
