Already has several, hehe...

Conectiva Linux has a nice UI (newt + GTK), that ships in Conectiva
Linux 6.0.  You can get the source:

        $ CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/home/cvs/
        $ cvs get mi libconectiva newt-cnc

Unfortunately the front end hasn't been separated from the installer

But, writing a REALLY GOOD front end seems quite hard.  It requires
queues (or action sets, or whatever you want to call it!), which require
prediction of constraints, which requires lots more thinking, hehe...

Matt Wilson (at Red Hat) is having a bash at this, without (good)
prediction... it appears that for most purposes, good constraint
doesn't matter.
