This is a dead project because it wanted to solve the UNIX configuration
nightmare (think on your mother using Linux) in a too broad way. I
investigated that, and actually have one of its contributors telling me
that "probably a simple library to get and set semanticless key/values on
disk will have a good balance of usefull-and-possible". This was a key
opinion to abandon the daemon-oriented part of the work.
LR helps in nothing if there is no other language bindings, D-BUS,
KConfig, GConf interoperability, old software patches, and specially
linuxconf-like software to consistently admin the system.
I just received an e-mail about a work in progress of a Ruby binding.
