So Alan Cox's opinion counts as nothing?
mconfig counts as nothing?

Anyway, I think you are missing the point. Sure, CML1 has problems, but
is your solution the one we want for the kernel? I do not think that is
clear yet. And bragging about a system's use in production tells us
little about its suitability for most kernel developers, or whether
you've addressed the global dependencies problem, or the syntax problem,
etc.

I'm sure CML2 configurator is whiz-bang, but it needs to do basic stuff
like having "make oldconfig" work exactly like it does in the current
config system.
