      Could this be acomplished by just loading a config txt file into a
      terminal program.

      you create a config in a OT2, display and log it to a text file.

      then all you need to do is edit the text file and have the user paste
      or play back the config using a terminal program?

      Just an Idea, I perfer and like the terminal configuration much better
      than the gui one, old habit I guess.
