Nah, it's not crap. It's a nice program for its purpose. Unfortunately
the author has half hacked Gdk and included it only partially so it doesn't
work with newer versions. The author is aware of this and will do a rewrite
some time this year (he told me...). Regarding Debian I have requested this
package to be removed which has been fulfilled. I would like to be able to
keep that program but if the underlying Gdk version is not available anymore
that's not possible.
Unix is user friendly ... It's just picky about its friends.
