  I don't know, the point is that if people use the "gtk" front-end then
I _think_ there will be all kind of exceptions and errors everywhere on
the console. I have to test it doesn't happen and fallback to the pager
front-end if glade isn't there.

  Then I'll be able to move that to a suggest because it won't break
apt-listchanges badly. But it's a 10-liner away probably.
