In the short run we will use the newt (text) frontend as default.
I feel we should wait at least until the new upstream libraries are
available to switch to the gtk (gui) as default because with current libs
the fonts can be distorted which is quite ugly.
Given that the freeze for Etch will start fairly soon now, it may be that
this means g-i default will only happen post-Etch.

We shouldn't forget that there is a little aestetical aspect that
should be solved in g-i. The usage of true type fonts induces ugly
misalignments in lists which should be center aligned around a hyphen
(minus). Attilio?
