I minimized the form earlier to see if it was bad form structure, so 
it's a small paste. The problem is that in conjunction with the value 
always being the default value, the Variables table doesn't contain any 
field data from this form.

function myform_admin_settings() {
   $form = array();

     foreach ($foos as $foo) {
       $form['myform'][$foo['id']] = array(
         '#type' => 'fieldset',
         '#title' => t($foo['id']),
         '#collapsible' => TRUE,
         '#collapsed' => TRUE,
       $form['myform'][$foo['id']]['active'] = array(
         '#type' => 'checkbox',
         '#title' => t('Active'),
         '#default_value' => 
   return system_settings_form($form);
