As I remember you trolled that it would take years to make a GTK front end for YAST...

Nope don't recall making that comment. I do remember saying that it was pointless though. But then again, it's easy to role out the troll word.

and look, it only took some months

It took more than a few months, and if you actually have a look at it:

They are basically exact reproductions of the Qt YaST modules, except written with GTK. So what exactly were they doing here that was different?

...don't let that stop you in your anti-gtk quest.

Ahhhhhh. I know this is a tender area to broach with some people, but I'm sorry sweetheart, I just don't believe that re-writing applications in another toolkit is a good idea.

I mean, why bother porting GTK to Windows and the Mac when you can just rewrite the GIMP's front-end in Cocoa and Windows.Forms? But of course, that would be silly, wouldn't it? ;-)
