Thanks a lot for being less lazy than I, and checking this out.

Rather than squashing the -t option for these GNOME gizmos and replacing it
with -T, why don't just support -T as well?  I know, a couple more lines of
code, but it would be worth it.  I understand that upstream might bitch --
but this is free software, let's seize upon this option before they do
something incompatible with it.
