One possible extension to Config::Model is to use Debconf as a more generic 
interface. This could be used to generate Debconf question to fill missing 
mandatory values (as GUI or curses interface are generated at run time). I'm 
working on this, but it seems quite difficult to generate debconf question 
dynamically. Not to mention translation problems...

All the best
