  And why not use GST backends instead of rewriting them? They can be
  get as an independent module from GNOME CVS. Perhaps I should package
  them separately to show that they're not stuck with GNOME System
  Tools, so they can also be used to write a KDE frontend. I do't like
  to see so much people reinventing the wheel. GST also needs an util
  for configuring the printers, so any help will be welcomed. And, FYI,
  current GST developers are using Debian for its development, so we
  have a lot of "power" among them ;)
