It has an X component as well as a curses-base component as well as a
printer component and lastly a scripting component.  It covers many areas
as separate programs (which I was going to package separately). 

Robert did suggest 'Net', and I'll probably go with that for the non-X
components.  I'd have thought that a few Apps category would have been
created by now.
