SubjectRe: [rfe] easier customization of kconfig for non-Linux projects
Hi Mike.

Forwarding this to Roman Zippel which is the kconfig maintainer.

The intent with this is clear but the solution you suggest albeit simple
does not really match where we could end up with kconfig.
Recently Roman added support for options in the kconfig language
and I would assume we could deal with most of this just using options.

One example could be to support options for the mainmenu entrye like this:

mainmenu "Busybow config system"
option project="Busybox"
option version="$VERSION" <= Where '$' signify an environment variable

etc etc.

In this way we could later distribute kconfig as a binary instead
of building it into the source as today.
