Why not just write it in APL?

I think all the kernel code should be kept as simple as possible.
People are already complaining about kernel size too.

There is nothing wrong with anybody writing a config script in
any tongue they choose, but I don't think it should be distributed
with the kernel source. Perhaps with the rest of the Java package?
