This topic is cross-posted to kde-distribution. That's why I thought Qt
would be under consideration.

That's nice to hear.

Debian has mostly switched to S-lang's screen routines. S-lang provides a
ncurses emulation as well as a somewhat cleaner interface to screen
programming. There's something RedHat wrote called "newt" that provides
very nice forms and dialog boxes using S-lang's screen routines, and
should be used for writing most new character interfaces. They provided a
program called "whiptail" that did a half-hearted emulation of "dialog".
I just sent them a patch that makes it a _complete_ replacement for
"dialog" and Eric Troan will release that shortly. It's GPL-ed.

I have submitted talks on the computer graphics of Pixar to Linux Expo
and Linux Kongress.

Balance the U.S. budget! - NO tax cuts until the deficit's gone.
