Actually, I can not really see a benefit at all in removing that converter in
base. It is not like the OS hands users of jail.conf like files a tool to
properly create or modify them. Jamie's rewrite of jail(8) just broke editing
jail configs for shell scripts. No big deal, as long as the OS keeps a
compatibility until there ARE tools.

However, once you start taking these converters away from the base, it needs to
be reimplemented in several ports, possibly leading to errors with each

If there would be a simple jail-admin tool allowing me operate on those complex
structures from a script, or if there would be something like a jail.d with
management scopes, where I'd be sure that configs are not manually touched, I
would happily give up config in shell variables.

I also volunteered in getting stuff done, by adding code to jail(8) to extend
the parser with config file management functionality, but Jamie used to be not
as reponsive as I would've loved. If there's others wanting to review and
possibly commit changes to the tool, I'd say that we go for it.
