   Has anyone discussed this with the Gnome developers?  If not, someone 
should.  The problem is, with most Linux-centric stuff like that, the 
"developers" are typically a bunch of kids who think they can do no 
wrong...and as such, don't even *hear* constructive criticism, much 
less pay any attention to it.
