Maintainability mostly. There are other problems with a single program
(as opposed to a single user interface) that it had too. There are lots
of ways of hitting many of Linuxconf's goals (eg HTML and tools for
command/gui mode that just wrap web widgets and drive them into the
same backend)

Mechanism and goal are seperable. So lets imagine I'm a random end user
or admin who doesn't know (or care) about stuff like LDAP. Can you concisely
describe why I want the things you see it giving - without reference to the
technology at all.
