I share your options on CML2. But that was the language of the older kconfig 
system that never made it into the Linux kernel. Here we talk about Roman 
Zippels config (and config language) that is now in the Linux 2.5.x tree.

So, it looks like that I get some feedback. I guess I will incorporate 
Robert's changes to my code and get one target compilable, e.g. the lubbock 
one. That would bring it nearer CVS integration (althought I guess that there 
is still some work left).

One thing that I'd love is

perl -pi -e 's/CFG_/CONFIG_/g' * */* */*/*

because the config system can only deal with variables that start with 
CONFIG_. That would break the difference between config options and config 
settings. But I guess we can differentiate between them by using the menu 
structure. And, the current differentiation is not correct anyway. The README 
file says:

* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
  These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
  you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with

But it has nothing to do with hardware if I select CFG_CMD_ASKENV or not. Or 
if I want CFG_LONGHELP or not. That is true for many CFG_ variables, so I 
guess not much harm is done in renaming them.

Greetings, Holger
