    Menuconfig is useful -- it's my favorite flavor. Lots of other people
    do, too. Plus I am committed to supporting every flavor of config that's
    already supported.

    About at this point of the plan I would want a period of proof-reading
    and beta-testing followed by submission to Linus.

    Yeah. I aim to minimize the work needed for that.
