One thing I mentinoed before, and didn't get any response to, was:

When selecting a GUI toolkit we should look for:

	1)	something GPLed or LGPLed
	2)	something easy to use, and easy to learn
	3)	something (hopefully) that tends to be primarily backward
 -***->	4)	something which is availble not only for X but for
			i.e. Berlin, MGR, SVGAlib, GGI, Macintosh,
			Win3.1/95/NT, Linux Console -- yes this is text
			mode, MS-DOS.  with a consistant programming interface
			so we only need one source tree.

this would allow us to write an installer that could work under Win3.1/95/Nt
DOS, and use the same installer under Linux for i.e. installing apps, etc.
