Yes, I feel the same way. The programs I have installed on my machine I
have installed irrespective of the toolkits and libraries they use. That
is why I am not concerned about a set of programs identifying which
toolkit or set of libraries they use in the packge name.

For me, having GNUstep in the description, or even just indicated by the
dependencies is enough; again, though, I can see not everybody feels
this way, so I'll withdraw my criticism.
