Setup was mentioned on Slashdot the other day.  I downloaded it and took a
gander at it.  It is nice that it is GPL and uses GTK (which we use), libglade
(which is like what I am trying to implement on the Workspace for dynamic GUI
generation) and libxml (which we will be using).  It is 2 MB (!) however,
compared to Loci's 39 kB right now, and Setup seems to be aimed at creating a
bootable image on CDs...Maybe good for a CD distribution of Loci?
