Yes I had the same feeling (gtk-UI looks much smarter). I would like
to address these issues but have some questions:

* xterm: for me it was just a useless package in my image. With the
approach I am working on (first shot [1] - but there were some
enhancements since then) I simply removed xterm from RDEPENDS assuming
people who want manual recalibrating (only those need a terminal for
calibration) will take care in their images which terminal to install.
Is that OK - or other suggestions?
* gtk-UI: Upon what would you suggest to make this decision? Distro
feature? If yes: Which entry?
