Obviously, as a segfault, we should fix this, but I think that we should
start discussing how to decouple the interface from the implementation. I
feel like gtk_ui and the text-based ui are actually separate applications
that kinda-sorta-not-really do the same thing. Ideally there should be
interface-independent code that does the install stuff, and calls into the
front ends to interact with the user.

This would also let us get a Qt front end on there eventually, or a win32
version, blahblahblah.
