I seem to rember trying to install it a while back.  the one thing to watch 
here is to not HAVE to install too many dependencies.  If it is distributed 
with Kimdaba, then that should be OK, but installing too many other 
dependencies is always a pain.  (for an imaging app I'm happy to install 
imlib, and jhead etc, but the best (ie easiest to install, and therefore get 
me in the best mood when testing) apps have no 'visible' dependencies).
