I do maintain a gnomeUI branch in my git repo, and I pull patches into
it as you tell me to :-)

I am a touch skittish about bringing it into the mainline because of the
past rather terrible experience of the Tk UI.

However, if I can get a commitment that you will stay around to work on
and support it, and the existing issues you know about are resolved,
then I think it all that would remain would be for some people to test
it and report back here on the mailing list with their experiences.

You could do that, if you like, though it would result in something of
an unequal and surprising difference between distros.

I might suggest you could start with a call for testers here, and if you
don't get much feedback, then think about the Fedora option.
