Default Nsh - network shell for OpenBSD appliances

From http://www.nmedia.net/nsh/

Quote:
NSH is a CLI intended for OpenBSD-based network appliances. It replaces ifconfig, sysctl and route with its own simple command language, and consolidates configuration for other daemons into one place, effectively replacing /etc/netstart and parts of /etc/rc for appliance-style usage.

NSH presents the user with a vaguely cisco-like interface with all configuration in one easy to read text list. It also gives the user access to system information and diagnostics. NSH replaces the userland commands which handle these functions, and talks directly to the OpenBSD kernel or control utility for daemon functionality.

Supported external utilities: pf, ospfd, ospf6d, bgpd, ripd, ldpd, relayd, ipsecctl, iked, rtadvd, dvmrpd, sasyncd, dhcpd, snmpd, sshd, ntpd, ifstated, tftp-proxy, ftp-proxy, tftpd, npppd, resolv.conf, inetd, smtpd, ldapd, ifstated
I wonder whether something like this is really useful. Or will it just lead to further balkanization of the OpenBSD world?

Variations of FreeBSD- DesktopBSD, PC-BSD, MirBSD- have probably helped more than hindered.
It just seems that nsh is more of an administrative tool which makes things easier and is optional.

This looks like something to try. Bringing more configuration into a single file is definitely worth looking at.
