(spoiler alert) Food for another blog article

Hey Stephen,

It is true that smitty is another tool that Linux is lacking and Linuxconf (or YaST or webmin) are very poor substitutes (and way too complex).

I have thought about writing a modular smitty-alike framework to hook scripts and procedures into. We definitely need something like that so people can easily contribute and improve this system.

At some point I am sure someone will do it. I will keep it in mind for when I become incredibly wealthy and need a good cause (other than food) for my money :)

PS I was planning to write a blog article wrt. smitty.
