    It's often tedious for other cases too ("I just want to enable a
    particular driver, what do I need to do so?"), and I do agree with Daniel
    that the SAT solver approach sounds interesting as a way to solve some of
    the complexities.

    At the same time, "SAT solver" does scream "over-engineering failure" to
    me. We've had horribly bad experiences with over-engineering in that space
    before. Yes, I know about MiniSAT and that these things can be done
    without necessarily huge amounts of complex code, but these things tend to
    grow to huge monsters.

    Who knows.
