I'm taking some very rough 1st steps... At least in how Configuration.tmpl
does things.

I'll try sh 1st... At least right now, some sort of Q&A
("What system is this?" "Do you want Spencer's regex package?")
or menu option should be easy enough... Configuration.tmpl may just
store the list of modules and Configure can scan thru and ask the
right kind of questions (ie: "I see you want mod_status... Should we
include full status monitoring?") and adjust as required.
