Thank you, thank you, thank you! I finally can get rid of Filelight,
which was my last KDE/Qt application, which in turn means I can rid
of all the Qt libraries. :o)

Baobab has a lot less functionality than Filelight, but the only thing
that I'm missing is the ability to delete a directory straight from the
app itself. There's also a very irritating bug - Baobab doesn't display
properly non-ASCII filenames (treats UTF-8 as if it was ISO-8859-1,
I believe), but I'll contact the author about this; hopefully he'll
fix it.

Thanks again, I've been looking for GTK
equivalent of Filelight for a long time. :o)
