Fair enough. I don't think X is a requirement for QT, but it surely is
for mythtv :). So everyone will have an xserver, my point is that it is
not always very convenient to have to use it.
That being said, I don't think it's a very big deal, and the revamp of
the settings itself is way more important than the potential
inconvienance to have to use X to do the setup.
I'm still hoping min/max values, potential values, expert level could be
stored as colums in the settingstable :-), alltough I also see potential
problems on how to store certain logic between settings like that. (only
show setting B,C & D if setting A is enabled, else show setting E & F etc).
Good luck with your SoC project,
