at the moment.

I would _love_ to ship Unreal Tournament 3 with MojoSetup, but it will 
be dependent on the state of the GTK+ UI and how much time I have during 
the UT3/Gears crunch.

loki_setup is still a viable option in the short term. I think MojoSetup 
brings a lot of nice new features to the table, but loki_setup has 
certainly proven itself for many years now. UT3 will use it if MojoSetup 
isn't ready (but titles in 2008 will probably switch over in the worst
