Hi Marko,

thanks for testing the release candidate, and thanks for sharing your

The modules should be listed alphabetized. But this order must be 
determined by ascii-value, because words in capitals come first. I 
propose we sort case insensitive, if there are no other suggestions. For 
the time being, I file an error at the bugtracker at

I'm really in favor of this suggestion. A basic GUI would be very 
desirable. I think a clear indication that the gui arrangement is not 
well-defined is the naming. "gui" or "gui1" don't give a clue about 
their content. So maybe we introduce different gui names as well. Any 
other comments on this?

Thanks for your input, Marko!
