I always thought it was neat the way m0n0wall handled it:

At this point, it's been discussed a bit - some people are for, some
against.  The best way to persuade people to try it would be to post a

convert it to use XML.  Yeah, that would be a bit of work, but I think the
discussion phase is over.
