The point wasn't so much that Xorg/Xfree86 isn't a valid
distribution anymore. The point was that the user was requesting an
enhancement to `better' denote the fact that there are more options
available on the list.
The only problem is that `more:' is very localized to the English
language and isn't suitable for other locales... and in this day in
age with IKEA-like solutions using only pictures to guide users,
unless you are going to solve it in a localized manner, using words in
place of images only increases complexity. A usability engineer may
argue that I'm wrong, but that's how I think it should be so we don't
have to solve this problem N times.
I do agree though. More options should have been more apparent in
the libdialog UI.
