I have been very skeptical about letting Java close to something 
like this since it's instability seems to overshadow it's 
portability claims.

However.... Justin Seiferth (who is in the process of subscribing 
to new-httpd) offers the following prototype of a Java frontend 
that uses the IFC/JFC or NS4.0. It looks very tempting...

Still, the bottomline of all of this is that we need to create the 
config API. I for one have no interest in using the GUI tools, but 
can picture some pretty snazzy monitoring and config tools in perl.
