Description of problem:
The gkrellm "monitor"/display is very useful but is not installed
unless an everything install is done. It would be nice to select this
gkrellm doesn't look like something I'd want to feature for most
users. It suffers from the "Xmms syndrome" (funky-looking UI), and
there are panel monitoring applets that can do the same basic stuff in
a more nicely integrated way.
My $0.02 - nothing is ever final. :)
