That looks sexy.

I mentioned the query option so that I could end up displaying on
'make menuconfig' the epochs dynamically, it would be a script that
wants the list of epochs, and I'd use this to dynamically populate
kconfig. Dynamic population of kconfig is not a yet well understood
thing, but I've figured out a way to do it :)

I think the above would suffice for sure!
