The core principle of the installer is that it operates on an application level and not a package level. The current way it determines if something is an application
 is by looking for a .desktop file. So in theory you could put a bitchx.desktop file  into the bitchx package and it would appear in the installer. That said I don't 
think it is generally a bad idea if command line/terminal applications are installed from the command line, but there is no hard policy blocking such applications from making themselves available in the installer.

Subject: unaccessability

Is / was a rather political decision to make BitchX unavailable through this app-market / Software GUI thing? Since having to yum install it, I am beginning to have a negative feeling toward the app market idea; the thought being: what else is being left out?
