We were talking about different things I think, but this is true also.

But you are very very hampered by the lack of colors.  It really hurts the
ability to do anything nice-looking.  The X-windows by design, of course,
is also expecting much more screen area than only 640x480.  It is good for
an install and a demo and not much more, maybe this is why no one ever put
any effort into it.

Send it to the UI group and see if anyone is interested :)

Such a thing would be valuable for our installation/uninstallation
scripts, I believe.
