I'd say that this is fairly mandatory - I remember many years ago when I
first moved to Linux and had a run level editor... the only problem is I
didn't know what a run level was :P

Yup.

Sounds fair.

Again.

I'm wondering how this is to be organised? Are we aiming for seperate
applications to perform the tasks or one pluggable application that can
do them all? (ala Linuxconf). I'd tend to lean towards the latter I
think, as it would mean that different sections of the app. could be
enabled/disabled depending on the user's experience/knowledge or UID :)
