Well, the point of the 'grun' in gnome-utils was to have a very minimal
"run this command" interface. The 'grun' you are pointing to is
implementing a lot of the functionality of a shell, a file manager, etc. -
you might as well just pop up a terminal window. :-)

Note that gnome-run is also in gnome-utils and has a slightly more
user-friendly interface than the grun in gnome-utils. Also note that in
gnome-core HEAD, the equivalent of gnome-run is integrated directly into
the panel.
