Oh, I forgot to mention that I don't find the Vim gtk2 icons near as
intuitive as the gtk1 ones.

And I really take the mswin'ifcation of UNIX (gtk2 refers to "folder",
where gtk1 calls the things "directory")

And most of all I totally cannot stand the GNOME dumbass reversal of
umpteen years of UNIX ordering of [OK] vs. [Cancel] boxes.

The GNOME folks have now created major inconstancy in the ordering of the
various applications I run depending on if it is a basic Motif, KDE, or
GNOME toolkit consumer.  The ordering inconstancy has caused my muscle
memory to choose the wrong thing (loosing data).
