This is very good news. I am all for a Sugar wrapper to smooth things
out for users.

One quick comment however.

For something that is meant to be a thin wrapper around other people's
work, GPL is a bit of a thorny choice of license. Distributing this
wrapper for use with sw with incompatible licenses would be a bit of a
can of worms.

Maybe that's what Thomas intends -- in that case, more power to him.
OTOH, if he is happy to see wider use (and still wants GPL-style
protection for his code) maybe something more like LGPL could be more
