Yes.  It is now in separate RPMS.  I found the compatibility glib and
gtk 1.0 RPMS were built with the same SRPM and this is in the site so
we are legal.

I know.  You forget Linuxconf between the things who need gtk 1.0, at
least until I upgrade to the latest and greatest.

I think I have looked at it many months ago and found it was not very
good.  In addition I am planning to make it plug and play, that is if
it will be put automatically in "online" state when you start PPP and
it will be put "offline" when you stop PPP.  If it detects a LAN card
when starting it will assume "online" status.  Of course this does not
fit with people who LANs at home and a non-permanent link to the net
so in case some person has a better idea...

This will probably require modifying the initscripts RPM because I
want this being done cleanly ie without automatic editions.
