	Quite so, I recall my first encounter with Gnome very early on.
Running a build for a couple of days to find out what all the fuss was about
and finishing with a panel containing nothing useful. I asked (I forget

that would in the future enable wondrous things - I was underwhelmed. The
Andrew toolkit was far more impressive.
