Yes your right about that.
But I want to tell why I came to this Idea of doing
that. As I was trying to configurate a Kernel for the
first time but without any success. Then I thought
about it, why this cannot be automatically.

So for the first thought, my spirit of doing this, was
for those who doesn't know e.g. what the option
"Enable loadable module support" means and if they
have to choose that or not. But right now I know that
it is not possible to do all the things
automatically(like the filesystem, Protokolls...). And
that is the reason why I make a Framework, so
everybody(I mean the experts) can give theire
suggestion what isthe best way to answering, a optione
like mention above comes, automatically. So if someone
wants to use a new kernel didn't end up desperate and
regrated using Linux(a new Kernel).
