it's because it's a marvelous idea, it's normative, and you can assume 
that the tool will evolve with the package it allows to configure. it's 
cool for a packager.

that's why we cannot really rewrite wwwconfig-common, but replace it with 
a new package, with new things in it.

wrt to the interpreter, I agree, we have not to depend on too much things. 
Shell scripts are fine, be we can use perl too (it's «standard») for 
example. But I like the sh thing, that with a bit of dialog, I think all 
will be just fine.
