There will be a fork here at one point. There's a good bunch of us who wants
a standard GTK+ environment as the main guis' for the phone. There's even
some that don't want any QT on the phone, at all;).

I just hope that the existing applications has been properly engineered,
separating the core from the UI (MVC, three tier, PCMEF) so that it's just a
matter of speaking a common protocol.
