What alternative do you recommend for Fedora?
Generally I think it's usually a good idea to 'go with the flow' on
issues like this, and use the tools the manufacturer(or
distributer/packager/whatever), has included. I wouldn't consider not
using urpmi on mdk, or apt on Debian. Likewise if I was designing a
distro-specific config tool, I'd use Python for RedHat, and Perl for
Mdk, since that is what anaconda, and DrakConf use respectively.
