KDE In his lengthy and interesting blog post covering the future of Plasma, KDE's Aaron Seigo proposes Qt Quick and QML (a declarative language that embeds JavaScript) as replacement of the Graphics View architecture currently used by Plasma. This holds a promise of massive speedups and cheap effects as all paint operations become candidates for OpenGL acceleration, contrary to the aging Graphics View architecture that is still stuck with various inefficiencies caused by the underlying QPainter approach. Expressiveness and easy programmability of QML is a nice bonus, of course.

Then you should find the new pc-sysinstall in FreeBSD 9.0 to be almost perfect. Text-mode, answer a bunch of questions, an install script is generated, then the install script is run. Every install is a scripted install, so you can manually tweak it as you see fit. And you can build any kind of TUI/GUI over top that you desire.
