Second this.  That would be great.  I dropped the size by 90% for a
time by eliminating unneeded functionality, then some change came along
that made my config file unstable, and I couldn't get back.  This seems
to be a problem generally, that there is a lot of dependency between
options that isn't clear.  A tool to create a "custom" kernel would be
excellent.  I suspect it would be a lot of work to create and maintain
though, especially at the rate the kernel changes.
