It depends on my aesthetic feeling. If I'd would create GUI myself
(to match mentioned feelings: cross-platform open-source widgets engine,
good behavior - no donates begging and stealth updates), I'd use it for
exploring and installation of new rocks.


Also it would be nice to have ability to save versions of all installed
rocks in separate file. In case you need to rollback after update.
Yes, the rollback, update, restore is what I mentioned in my email about rock 'receipes'. Thanks for being more concise then I was.
