If the wheel really doesn't need reinventing, then why are ten perfectly
good engineers doing it right now?

Maybe we DO need to throw away Uniconf, GConf2 and KConfig and do
something completely new, I don't know. But the fact that people are
trying to do it is in no way an argument for why it should be done.
