There are existing projects that are trying to do this. However the best of them have not taken off yet. The combination of the SBLIM, Config4GNU, Gnome System Tools, and Webmin seems the best.
I believe a good demo of a configuring tool for a single system service or application could bring together the GST and Webmin developers, along with some documentation projects. I hope this demo and documentation would be a catalyst that create a fully implemented configuration and documentation system for linux.
The best demo would include
The possible GST tools are:
The users and groups, and bootloaders are probably the most likely canidates.
So it seems I would need to either pick two tools, or just do apache.

Using the documentation of apache for the schema and context help should be easy. Using config4GNU parser should also be easier because it is already written. There also seems to be generic providers from some CIM Schema objects, coming from the C4G parsers. So this would just have to be customized.
So the hard parts are:
