Personally I don't see anything wrong with the GUI of the draktools.

If imrpoving them means to rewrite them from scratch or replace them 
with inferior tools from other distros, then that would be a big effort 
and/or step backwards just for the estetics. 

Substance counts a lot more than appearance to me.

P.S: cc'ing in both cooker and mageia lists is not a good idea as many 
people are not on both lists so the discussion will just split in two
