   Fair enough.

   Just to show how a generic config tool can look like: Here is
   screenshot of a crontab file written as xml in a xml editor (made by
   someone else - no working code, just an example).

Hmm.  That screenshot forms an argument one way or another, but I'm
not sure which.  I find the screen layout confusing--i.e., in the left
pane of the window, what do the little unlabeled document icons
represent?  I think I do understand the rest of it.  Perhaps this
simply means that the user interface is less optimized than it might
