Yes, this would be a tool worth Infinite Distinction for a lot of Linux
users. Say I have a new laptop and I want to configure the kernel build
based on a) the (probably similar to allmodconfig) distribution .config,
and b) the set of loaded modules. It should be possible to dig into
Kconfig files and output a first-shot .config, which will save to
potential testers of new kernels hours of compilation and/or trimming 
down `grep CONFIG .config | wc -l` (2267) configuration options.

Thanks for proposing the idea.

Romano
