Hrm. Gonna have to hack on gnome-pilot some I guess. Apart from galeon it's the only part of gnome I use, but I do use it every day.
gpilot-install-file (thank heaven for tab completion) dies if it can't connect to an X display, even if you are using --later (which doesn't display anything at all and just marks a file for later installation). I want to use it in cron, after a sitescooper/plucker run, but this simply won't work if it needs X.
Also gonna have to hack on the backup conduit - if I install a prc file, and hit the sync button, the damn backup conduit sits there for 5 minutes doing stuff. If I then install something else, off it goes again! I'd like to say "only backup once a day" or whatever.
Gee I hope the source is clean :)
