Yeah, that's the way I was leaning.  I think it only makes sense.  I'll put

I found it last night, and re-opened the bug.  Pessulus has since moved on to
using the ui files as well, so I'll have to re-work the patch with the current

When I "burst" on to the mailing list, getting close to a year ago, I said that
Sabayon is one of the most important technologies within GNOME currently, and I
mean that.  Things like sexy new messagers, fancy new bling, etc. are nice and
all, but for *real live administrators* in schools and businesses, all the
bling bling don't mean a thing if you can't CONTROL it.  Sabayon and Pessulus
(and, I see we have a new member to the "administration" family: nanny.  We'll
be needing that on Edubuntu) are KEY, VITAL technologies to moving GNOME into
the real world.  Sysadmin tools aren't sexy, and it's always hard to find
people who care about them.  But as a Sysadmin myself in my "day job" for 20
years, tools like Sabayon are right up my ally, and it's been a real pleasure
to help Sabayon along.

And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
