I was thinking more along the lines of the fact I can whip up
a kernel config file with vi; start with some GENERIC and LINT
files, and let us at 'em. I don't object to menuconfig; I'd
just like a bsdconfig. It wouldn't be that much harder to output
a file along the lines of the bsd style than the current
CONFIG_XXX=blah crap is it? So I use menuconfig to get close to
what I want, then use vi and go in and tweak to my hearts content.

It isn't true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't
really understand it till it makes you cry.
