That's not a new source for MapProxy but a source to define geographical extends for seeding tasks. The new mapproxy-seed tool can seed polygon areas instead of a simple BBOX and you can use OGR to load these polygons.

        ogr_datasource: 'shps/world_boundaries_m.shp'
        ogr_where: 'CNTRY_NAME = "Germany"'
        ogr_srs: 'EPSG:900913'
        level: [0, 14]
        srs: ['EPSG:900913', 'EPSG:4326']

From  http://bitbucket.org/olt/mapproxy/src/0.8.x/mapproxy/core/paster_templates/templates/etc/seed.yaml#cl-3

Is the documentation unclear/misleading about that? I'd love to hear feedback, or better, corrections from native speakers.
