I needed the patch below to get it working at all. sym_get_choice_value()
might return a NULL pointer. The choice value is only updated if the
choice symbol is yes and even then it can be NULL, if no choice value is
I couldn't select 'Adaptec AIC7xxx support'. Choice symbols are special
tristate symbols, beside having the tristate value it also points to a
choice value.
The autoexpand mode is very annoying, even after changing a single symbol
everything is expanded again. Keyboard support is basically nonexistent.

Anyway, it looks interesting, but still needs quite some work. :)

bye, Roman
