In my earlier patch, I proprose using a "global" flag to indicate that an unnamed section exists so the flags argument would still be needed.

We already have 2 parameters in mind - flags, and comment char.  I don't feel that combining the two in a single enum is particularly good since it would be better to allow the application the freedom to set an arbitrary comment character and not be locked in to any static list that we choose (see my previous email response).
