Web based configurator might be nice: but there's prblem with it: There
are many options that are available only after some other option is

If you don't hide options, it will be pretty messy...

Also, it might be nice to be able t compile kernels for non-i386
machines. It is smetimes pretty hard to get kernel for sparc if you
don't have sparc handy. (Setting up cross-compiler is not *tthat*
hard, but it is not really easy.)
