I think I know you good enough from the various provocative statements
you made in various places on the web insulting the members of the Free 
Software community. I must admit that I always had a good laugh at your 
statements and I'm not taking you really serious. You can continue to 
call me an asshole without any problem at my part. I just refuse to work 
with you since I do not like the style you use to propose your ideas 
even though you made some good points.

We had this design before and switched to the tree structure since the
notebook interface simply didn't work. A lot of other programs (not only 
GNOME) are using the same interface (Netscape, Mozilla for example) and
IMHO it's a good way to present the user with a large amount of 
configuration options.

Salut, Sven
