I think that is a bad idea to exclude applications from a Software manager,
because they don't live up to some visual quality guidelines.
It don't benfit the endusers, if the software manager only shows 50% of the
gui applications in the Fedora repositories.
What about not showing the icons if they dont have the need size, just show
a default icon based on the application category
they you have both the good look and a lot of applications.
