Those web configuration tools though, they're a bit podgy and the
designers tend not to have the widgets they need to do a good enough

I'd like to see a tool or set of tools which was as equally able to
edit the localhost as it was to configure any machine you had ssh
access to. A toolbox like configuration would be nice, loading up a
machine, editing the right configs and queuing the restart or other
actions and then committing changes back to the server in one hit or
committing them to multiple machines.
