thanks (as always) for the patch! I'm still uncertain on the future of
the GTK+ UI: currently there is no one that willing to properly
maintain that UI; probably we should just split it into a separate
binary *and* source package and fine a way to provide UIs as plugin,
installable in a dir reportbug can scan and eventually enable them
