Correct. I see no reason to separate the two at this point. 
Basically, I want to see integration of a protocol in Apache that 
we can use for configuration. I'm not real excited about a GUI 
interface. If there is a protocol we can both work with, we can all 
accomplish our goals of the ideal interface.

If we use SNMP and Harrie's mod_snmp, you'll only need to teach 
your config client to speak to a specific port on the server.

The Perl comments were from Dean Gaudet. It is possible now with 
mod_perl to handle most of the configuration issues using Perl.
