I think this is a noble goal, but far beyond the scope of the current
project, which is stated on the project page as "Make it easier for
sysadmins and new Zope developers to install and configure Zope".  I
believe that ZConfig will help us towards this goal.  It should also not
hinder us from reaching the goal that you've defined above.
