Oh, I didn't know if any discussion had taken place for this. In which
mailing list did it take place? I searched gnome-hackers and
gnome-devel-list and couldn't find anything. I would be happy to have a
look at the discussion.
As far the gnome-system-monitor is considered, it is cool that it has
everything, but sometimes we need smaller tools than just the grand tool
having everything. Also, the disk usage listing in gnome-system-monitor
is very primitive.
I think I can make component out of it (gnome-df) so that
gnome-system-monitor could use it. It should be pretty easy (one evening
job) because the whole thing is already very neatly widgetized.
With the component available, gnome-system-monitor can use it within it
and also people (like me) wishing to run it alone can have it with a
small container application.
Please tell me if I should make component out of it. I am ready to do
it, provided I am promised that once it is done it will go in the cvs
(anywhere, but most likely in gnome-util), because trashing the project
after I spend more time isn't going to make me happy. :)
Looking forward to hear everyone's opinion.
Q: Why is it that the more accuracy you demand from an interpolation
function, the more expensive it becomes to compute?
A: That's the Law of Spline Demand.
