Better, definitely.

I for myself freely admit that the system-config tools I work on(*) have
room for improvement in many areas. Come forward with your RFEs, come
forward with ideas for UI fixes or patches to bring text mode up to
speed, come forward with _anything_, but don't complain afterwards if
you stayed silent. This is not a carte blanche that I'll do everything
suggested, but at least you may later complain if I didn't ;-).

(*): -date, -nfs, -samba, -services, -users, hwbrowser (the latter
should be redone completely on top of HAL)
