I could make a case for replacing other software with pspp software in
at least one lab on campus if the gui had dialog boxes for RECODE,
CROSSTABS and FREQUENCIES, and some kind of dialog to import text
data. That may be too much to ask for in next release, but that is
necessary before ask naive users to use pspp.

I haven't gotten past the frustration of pointing and clicking with
glade-3. The progress is slow, mostly because because of my own
distaste. Someday I'll make a real dialog box, though.
