    I asked Linus specifically about the replacement of the shell based parsers.
    The answer were quite simple:
    - It should be convinient to use a new parser.
    - Fast compilation, no errors etc.
    It's doable.

    David suggest to use randomly generated configurations, but they lack
    one important feature. They are always valid, and a new system shall be
    able to deal with hand-edited .config files in the same way as oldconfig.
