How about a universal configuration system, using, say, Scheme or
something similar.  That way we can configure everything either
programmatically *or* 'by hand' without any of those crappy config
programs!  Power for power users, GUI for those who don't want to
delve into the guts of stuff.

Then, when we're done with that (he he) we can rename things to be
more informative.  "etc"?  It should be "config", of course! etc...
