    The part of what you want that is AFAIK not possible with the current
    kconfig is the "allyesconfig and randconfig would pre-select".

    The actual dependencies on such an option could trivially be expressed
    the way you want it.

    But I'm trying to make the kconfig dependencies more robust by making
    them less complex, and making them more complex for this developer-only
    use case is nonsense.

    Even more considering that the developer who gave the initial list of
    variables is the same who always spreads FUD about kconfig when the
    complex dependencies break...
