RE: 2.4 Module List - zenity

Hey there,

It would be a rather lame language binding ;)

Well, I can see us shipping a bunch of really useful nautilus scripts
with our desktop - it's basically a case of identifying which ones we
should go with. Zenity would be a side effect of shipping those scripts.

It should also be noted that gdialog was part of GNOME 2.2 Desktop - so,
we have a basic feature regression now ;)

True, but making that assumption would be a pretty bad idea - I think
that more and more sysadmins being introduced to Linux/GNOME will
definitely want to use some sort of UI.
