I still have to deal with two different "configuration" tools, that do
about the same thing but a bit different. If i want to tune app K i need
the KDE configuration tool, if i need to tune app G i need the gnome
configuration tool. When kde apps and gnome apps look exactly like each
other (which is an other problem, different look and feel) how do i know
that i need kconfig when i want to tune app K? KDE and Gnome are two
different things, even though they do almost the same thing. It is like
using Honda parts to fix a Fort, a handy mechaninc might make it work,
but it would be way easier to use Fort parts to fix a Fort.
