Linuxconf or Webmin - pros and cons


I don't want to start a flame war, but...

I just try to find out the better solution for me.  Is this
listing correct?  Do some of you have more important points?
Also, it would be nice to compare this to coas and yast.

                    Linuxconf       Webmin
Not Linux-only      yes (new)       yes (for a long time)
ASCII interface     yes             yes, via lynx (looks not perfect)
Web interface       yes             yes (as the name suggests)
X interface         yes             yes, via Mozilla
API for modules     yes, complex?   yes, simple?
Interface to apt    no              no, only RPM etc.
Leaves comments     sometimes       yes
sendmail support    yes             ?
exim support        no              no
postfix support     no              yes
wuftpd support      ?               yes
apache support      ?               yes
crond support       ?               yes
net config support  ?               not for Debian
access control      yes             yes
included in Debian  yes             no

But, as always in Debian-land, we might just have linuxconf
AND webmin AND coas AND yast.  Hm, maybe not yast.

Cheers, and thanks in advance for your comments,
