Glub - I am afraid that was me. At the moment it has been sidelined
due to other priorities but I may see my way to get back to it RSN.

Exactly what I had in mind but I was thinking more of associating
various kernel variables, where appropriate, with the hardware
(e.g. if you have a network card you get asked about the networky type
defines). I have cut some code on this but it is all background stuff
that allows Those Who Know (tm) to tell the configuration writer (I
called it abc - Automated Builder of Configs) what is associated with
what and the limits of those settings (if any).
If anyone is at all interested in having a look at what I have done
and where I think I am going they are more than welcome. Just drop me
