Can you tell me more about dcfgtool? Is it just a simple key=value system
with 'sections' provided by the file system? How does it handle comments
in the config files and changing of values in the files, is there a C lib,
etc.. How about multiple layers, like deity/ftp-method (presumably,
/etc/config/deity/ftp-method) and so on..

Ps, with Deity we are developing a Text/GUI widget set that might be
interesting to the admin tool group..
