First I want to reiterate someone else's comment -- having a GUI (in the
sense you seem to be thinking) doesn't necessarily increase usability.
Usability comes from a design that allows the user to do what s/he wants
intuitively, not from a pretty look-and-feel.

I'm not sure I understand why using gtk-fb, etc helps over using
something like bogl. Two of the design constraints/goals for the installer 
are size and simplicity. What kind of overhead will gtk-fb add? We already 
have slang-based and bogl(fb)-based UIs in the works.
