Is asterisk-gui worth using?

and does it work with v1.8?

Context: I’m finding manually tracking down and editing conf files to be hard going, and I’m looking for something to do the heavy lifting for me. I’m not a fan of the bundled distro/Asterisk/GUI systems as my impression is that they get in the way, can be restrictive, and generally don’t play nicely.

Of course I’m willing to be persuaded, if there’s a solid GUI out there somewhere. Only precondition is that I’ll soon be rolling FFA into the mix, and it mustn’t preclude that.
