I guess you're volonteer to do the porting work, and to maintain the 
tools thereafter. Otherwise, that's moot.

In ten years of contribution to mandrake/mandriva/mageia, I've seen 
several similar proposals to rewrite those tools for "better graphical 
consistency with my prefered desktop (tm)" or "better maintainability 
unsing more adapted languages (c)". Unfortunatly, the level of actual 
contributions to the code to reach those marvelous goals barely reached 
the verbosity of the discussion on the mailing-list...
BOFH excuse #196:

Me no internet, only janitor, me just wax floors.
