I think is just matter of taste, everything has its advantages and
disadvantages. We (people) are different and have different needs, and I
think this is so well :)

It's only a prototype (mock-up), so it would be make no sense to provide
a package for common users. There is this applet prototype _only_ for
one reason - to present this ideas to the Ubuntu (desktop) developers.
Then this ideas may be used or not... It depends only on you...

Thank you for your comment!
