Do you want this configuration living in the same place as the real
startup configuration ?  I see no option for using an alternative
directory; which I would have thought was a good idea.

Do you want your local config adjustable only by root like the
standard chkconfig records?

A very brief look discovers no logs produced by chkconfig recording

Besides anybody should know you manage configuration by pointing a
webcam at an arrangement of green bottles on a wall.
