Indeed! In Tails we have a ticket and blueprint tracking something like


Of course, our configuration tool would also include OS-level stuff, but
I guess SubgraphOS/Qubes/Whonix would also be interested in that. At
least it'd be nice if code could be shared (e.g. we can import the Tor
configuration parts via a module and use the same  in our application).
Bonus if it's written in Python, building on the ecosystem of
Tor-related project we already have there (primarily stem).

I expect that some Tails people attending the Tor dev meeting in March
might be interested in discussing this.
