I think that the number of distros with their own set of tools is way
lower than the number of distros that don't.

and, IMHO, I think that not adding GST would leave a lack of integration
and consistence in the desktop, for example, what should do an user who
wishes to change the time? install a distro with their own setup tools?
open a term and run date? the first idea that whould round his mind is
to right-click the clock and select "change time" in the popup menu
(well, at the moment this is fictitious, this is one of the patches in
my TODO list). These areas should be covered by the desktop instead of
leaving it in distros' hands (IMHO, of course :-D)

I know that this is a strong bet, but it could be worth doing this :-)
