I think he might have meant that except for gregedit everything has been ported
from C to Python. As far as I know none of the utilities have been ported to
GTK3; I'd be delighted to find out they are.

So, I'm not really convinced of the usefulness of the gregedit on top of the
DCE/RPC interface. I'd rather see the libregistry-based gregedit finished, as that
also allows us direct access to the Samba registry and registry files.
