The problem with calling it just that is there are many more clients for
masqdialer than just this one, like the qt/kde client, the cli client,
the java client, which may be packaged in the future.  The major
difference between these clients are the toolkits/desktop environments
they are designed for.

It originally had GNOME panel support, but that is currently removed for
the gtk2 port.  I believe there are plans to restore this functionality
in the future.  I would have no problem with removing GNOME until/if it
becomes a GNOME application again.

My currently built package (for woody at the moment) has the following:

Depends: libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.0.1), libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4), libglib2.0-0 (>=
2.0.1), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.0.2), libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.0.1)

So it doesn't look like the current package is using the Gnome libraries
at all.

How about appending the, rather good I think, description from the
masqdialer package:

Description: gtk client for masqdialer
 This package contains a gtk masqdialer client
 for debian.  The masqdialer system is designed 
 to provide easily accessible control of 
 multiple dialout modem connections to the 
 members of a LAN using IP Masquerade for their 
 internet connectivity.
