I like that.

I'm a bit concerned that there is only talk about editing configuration
files in all these discussions.  There's more to system administration
than that.

I'm also surprised that noone has mentioned 'func' yet, even though it
was prominently featured on LWN's front page an issue or two ago:
<http://lwn.net/Articles/286496/>. I believe it could be a good
supplement to augeas.
