I don't even know enough of the differences to be stupid about it.  Like 
I said, I don't care.  I just want it to work.  What does GNOME use? 
What does the RHL tools use for their GUI stuff in GNOME?  What about 
KDE users?  Those are things we need to take into consideration WRT a 
GUI client.  A console one in ncurses works for me just fine.  If the 
console one support command line, that would be cool as well.  IIRC the 
current one does.
