Note, however, that it's never a good idea to just go and suggest
something to an open source project; actually doing the work is far more
likely to achieve something.

And explaining why one thinks that a graphical installer adds value
also helps..:-).

A GUI can have better usability. E.g. some beginners don't know, how to mark an item in a list for selection in the current installer. O.k., 'use spacebar to select' would avoid confusion. But with GUIs and mouse it would be more intuitive for desktop users.

IMHO both is necessary:
- improve usability and docs of the non-GUI version
- have a GUI version

At least I assume to have it choosable, as I (and other purists too) prefer non-GUI on servers and old hardware.
