I understand your point - who needs Infrared device, Joystick attached

display contents from some configuration file (fstab, hostname)
without any higher abstraction.
So the service they essentially provide is "syntax checking" (without
a choice to override).

There is one point about just dumb editors of configuration files: AutoYaST.
Getting rid of these modules completly would also mean that we get rid of
related AutoYaST functionality. And once we have the AutoYaST functionality,
run-time functionality is, depending on particular case, mostly for free.

However, I agree that there are modules which are not needed any more for none
of YaST's use cases (e.g. ISDN module).
