While you make some good points, I think Uwe has a point too.  In years of 
trying to get working configs, from about slink, through woody, sarge, sid 
and finally Ubuntu & Xorg, I've rarely got working configurations via hand 
editing the config file without enormous effort.  A good gui tool would be a 
nice thing.

I'll believe _that_ when I see it.  It feels like I've been hearing this since 
1997 :-)
