And I of course am not advocating removal of it before an acceptable
substitute is available :)

Just my opinion : modemlights applet "is" my dialer. And it's a very cool feature of gnome. I never used gppp or kppp because they just don't work on my system (Mdk8.2 PPC). And I don't like these big windows for displaying such a little information : are you connected or not ?

To be a real and very cool dialer, Modemlights only needs to offer the ability to set different connections for different IAP and to choose between them.
