Seeing that gdialog is essentially a compatibility wrapper for the gdialog that went with Gnome 1 (or something like that), it doesn't seem like it's worth much hassle to keep it. Hell, Fedora doesn't ship a compat package for things like python 2.4, which is far more widely used and more recent. Keeping an ancient compat script around seems like a waste of Matthias' time. -- Todd OpenPGP -> KeyID: 0xBEAF0CE3 | URL: www.pobox.com/~tmz/pgp ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Be wary of strong drink.
