In order to design the Yast-GTK package selector

YaST -GTK?? Ummm... is this to be an alternate or a full on
replacement for YaST-QT?

I seriously hope that SUSE/Novell isn't doing what this sounds
like.... GTK is a disaster. It's a mess when it comes to UI design
and usability. Not to say QT is perfect, but it's a whole lot better
than anything I've ever seen or used that was GTK based.

Please... please tell me I'm inferring the wrong thing here. SUSE has
dropped the SUSE Watcher in favor of a broken Zen/Run/GTK mess, and
now... this?

Gnome designers are very busy "simplifying" the UI... at this rate, in
2 years Gnome will be a big red button that you can press that is
labeled "Do Stuff". Don't relegate the SUSE tools to this universe
too...

Sigh...
