For big installations, I think, most admins would prefer config files because configuration can be done in less time. You can easyly copy and past or you can generate parts of the configuration files by script e. g. from an inventory database or so.

For installations with only a view servers and view changes maybe someone might find a GUI helpful, because he does not need to know about the syntax of the config files.

So I think, the idea Julian posted is a very good idea.
