If modules have registered their tunables with an extensible framework,
they can be browsed with a normal remote control.  That is, instead of
making the user assign function keys to different settings, you only
need a single way to get _into_ a "settings browser".  From there, the
_framework_ can make menus of settings, and widgets to control those
settings.  (I don't mean to _preclude_ pure keyboard methods, but if the
thing is going to be usable from a remote it needs to have

Using a framework means different UIs can be written to access the same
settings, so that's a good start.
