Yes, there are some neat things which might be less feasible, or at
least less of a good idea due to the current tools.

I have a feeling that ESR stopped announcing releases of it on l-k since
it wasn't adopted yet, and Linus has decided to fix more important
things than the config system (and ESR refuses to try and transition
from CML1 to CML2 in a manner that can be easily verified to be correct
or stop trying to tackle the Aunt Tillie problem at the same time).
