Another are where I want to raise awareness is the level of the editfiles.

For me, the lowest level would just know about flat files.

The next level knows about various forms of comments.

One level higher we would know about various formats of files. For example:

  ISC-format (like for dhcpd.conf or various Debian Utilities
  INI-File (like all the KDE stuff)

It would be a tremendous help to do something like this

  { =ini /usr/local/kde/share/config/kickerrc
  SelectGroup "General"
  SetOption CustomSize 26

  { =isc /etc/dhcpd.conf
  SelectGroup /^subnet
  SetOption "option routers" ""
  SetOption "filename" '"pxelinux"'
  DeleteOption "next-server"

The "isc"-Stuff would know that it has to generate semicolons, e.g.

  option routers;
  filename "pxelinux";
