There are numerous things like this out there.  I think both linuxconf
and COAS have web based modules.. (note that COAS uses Python:-)

It would indeed be a good idea:-> Take a look at linuxconf and coas,
see what you think, look at what work has been done already, for
Debian - I think both are based on some kind of module system, so you
could probably work on that.

Somebody got a hatchet and is looking for things to chop?;-)))

Hmmmm - if you just want to do something for fun, maybe the 'mutt'
mail program.  It doesn't have a super complicated config file...

Have fun:->
