Take it!!! There is a god after all :) Bwahahahaa!

Large, core libraries (IMHO) like Qt or libc6 should not be given to
NM. The learning curve is too steep. Again, my 1+1/3 cents.

PS. My only problem with the Qt packages, besides them being broken
left right and center, is that there are just too many packages.
Would it be possible to put all the little bits and pieces of 
Qt into a handful of packages instead of the miliard of them
now? For example

designer + assistant + linguist + qmake + other dev tools => qt3-tools

It would also be great to be able to install Qt3 embedded and Qt3 X11 libs
at the same time. Unless Qt3 embedded supports X11?? [not sure, since
I haven't installed it yet for the reason that it might break my Qt3 x11
