Ok, that sounds pretty interesting. I just tried them, and they do look
pretty nice (albeit they got upset at me because I'm not running woody
or potato).  I like especially how they prompt you for the root

Well, as is always the case in Debian, we have choices.  Unless one of
ximian-setup-tools or webmin becomes overwhelmingly better than the
other by the time sarge nears release, we can just include both. 
Perhaps if the user chooses a GNOME environment they'll get x-s-t by
default, if they choose KDE they'll get webmin by default.

The most important point is that one or both of these *will* be
installed and configured by default either in sarge, or a separate
"Debian Desktop" version of sarge (although the latter should be avoided
unless absolutely necessary).
