Heh, linuxconf does that.  It has the front ends you mention (well, the
Qt one is supposed to be under development, haven't heard much about it
though, and I haven't been asking), but it has gtk, ncurses, slang/newt,
wxxt, java, and web frontends now.  It also provides services, and has
a set of core services with modules that get attached to the core.

The difference is that it works and has been working for 2 years...
Maybe that's why gnome has included a linuxconf front end since last
