gtk) and it's not weaker, I just didn't finished the programming.
If you have time to fill bugs for me, that would be good, if you don't,
I'll try to find all of them, since I'm the one that's actively programming
the qt port anyhow.
If I can't make the in place edition of the cylinder to work in a way you
and dirk think it's good enough I'll get back to one that's similar to the
