The problem is that I know it's a G and O, hence it looked fine when I
was doing it.  But will somebody who doesn't know of GO (or even what
Gnome is) look at it and be baffled?  Um, probably.  Does that matter

care-free approach on the matter.)

Well it is a collection of software that is oriented around (but not
necessarily requiring [1]) the Gnome platform.

[1] It'd be really cool if all of GO was cross platform.  Abiword
already is and Gnumeric is heading that way.  It'd be amazing to be able
to drop in a LiveCD of GO and load up GO apps in Windows, just to show
