While using parse_ini_file there is no possibility to insert double-quote in the value. Seems function completely removes nested quotes and da data between them.

Standard for INI file "quote quoting" method is doubling (see MS Excell, Thunderbird, Outlook, GMail programs which could create INI files). But it does not work with parse_ini_file.

Reproduce code:
key  = "test""quotes"
