I don't know about linuxconf, but the brief thing I read a while
back about COAS was that it was a framework for configuration
that allowed for plugins for different apps.  It seems to me that
w/ this senario it would be up to the app author to write a
plugin module that worked w/ the COAS framework.  Like what you
said.  I guess the main thing is getting everyone to agree on a
configuration framework "standard" so a program author doesn't
have to write N different config plugins/apps.
