I knew this would come up sooner or later.

I'm sure we've all seen the newsgroup threads about KDE/Qt.  I would
prefer to avoid KDE because Qt (on which KDE is based) is not GPL or
similarly licensed. It's a shame, I really like idea of KDE.

Lesstif is maturing quite rapidly, how about an applet set based on
lesstif.  We could resuse quite a few already developed applets.
