This is a good point, where Redhat uses python + GTK
is for admin apps that can be added or removed on the
fly. I would never suggest integration of this, or any
other scripting language project, into a desktop
environment. That said, I would have the project,
while I work on it, and once it is useable by humans,
on a sererate page, ready to be used by those who want
a different, icon view, browser or simply want to try
something new.
I am not intendng on storming the GNU/Linux world and
making myself famous; I just want to make something
that people like. If other people like it, then the
teachers will like it too (good thinking, eh?)
