thanks for your long reply and we're in total agreement in all
of your points.

All of these problems are really down to YaST being its own platform,
rather than specialised libraries as part of a larger platform. This
probably made sense and was an advantage 8 years ago when there was no
Free java, and no mono.

When we started YaST, the license was the main reason to develop our
own platform. Remember that YaST wasn't GPL until 3 years ago.

If you were developing YaST today instead of a decade ago would you
really not choose to make it part of a platform like java which is

I guess today, we would focus on as many reusable, freely available,
highly portable, open-source components as possible.
