A concept I've had in my mind that is kind of along these lines is a "System Configuration" web page that admins can use to configure OFBiz. That way, instead of having to sift through properties files, XML files and the like, a web page would display the settings that can be applied to those files. When the admin clicks Submit, the updated settings are written to the appropriate files, then the admin is advised to restart OFBiz to have them take effect.
This is probably way more involved than what you intended. But at the same time, I think it would go a long way to making it easier for newcomers to install and configure OFBiz.
