I've been planning to package it for a while, but never find time for it.  I
will package it this weekend though.  The dotfile generator I am talking about
is a TCL/TK app, which has a "module" for each app it generates dotfiles for.
It currently has bash, fvwm1, fvwm2, elm, emacs, ipfwadm, rtin and tcsh
