No, I'm not. And no, I probably don't want it to do that on my
system... who the hell wants a Brevel sandwich toaster control in
mythconfig anyway?? The correct option is "extra crispy", your wrong if
you think differently.
I'd much rather the whole lot was deposited in a nice text file in /etc/
personally. Who needs a GUI on a server anyhow?
Your selective quoting does kind of miss what I went on to say about it
offering sensible defaults that you can change; thus inferencing the
advanced options are still there for you to play with. It also missing
the part about built-in help so that configuring is easier.
