What is the advantage of never hitting a shell?
Btw.: I never did C programming but installed OpenBSD very often,
different versions. Am I god?
However, one can use webmin to administrate OpenBSD computers. If this
does not suffice, you will have to start an "Easy OpenBSD" project and
contribute that. Maybe a lot of people will be happy then. Look at the
KDE project: these people write editors for config files and call
them "k<configfile>". I think this is the dark side of GUI world.
But generally some people will be happy about it, so they can pkg_add
such tools and use them. Why not? As long as you don't *have* to use

I don't think there will ever be different OpenBSD versions like that.
Looks more like a clever marketroid move.
