Y is really a nice stuff but don't you think it's a little bit young ?
If we make Debtop depends on such a young project (correct me if I'm
wrong) this will lead to a very slow growing project...

Well... that's as ambitious as exciting, but is that realistic ?

I mean, maybe we should focus on a solution that merges all that points :

- The best features (almost all what you said)
- A nice implementation
- A massive use of existing software for preventing us to reinventing
  the wheel (a well known concept ;-)
