I hope to see as many people as possible standardize on GUI tools some
time in the future (an OSS configuration stack). g-s-t is simply not a
candidate for wide adoption as it currently is because its not the best
solution in terms of real user experience. 

If g-s-t is part of the vision that Havoc, Seth, Jody, etc. have for a
much improved control-panel/system-config*/whatever, only then am I for
its inclusion since it has a chance of becoming somewhat standard, and
an actual improvement in ease-of-use.

Whether slack or gentoo refuse to ship one of the available options for
their own inscrutable reasons is simply orthogonal to the discussion
