That's right. If you don't mind the LessTif bugs, and you're dealing
with English and a few other languages, it's fine. The add-on language
stuff is non-free, and I could (but don't currently) provide an Open
Motif-linked version, which would be in contrib.

The worst LessTif bug only seems to occur with non-English locales, to
rub salt in to the wounds ;-)
