Installation has improved tremendously in GT4. The way I see it, the
difficulty in integrating GT and GE has more to do with the
configuration of WS-GRAM and the integration package. I was told that the
Globus team's plan right now is to improve on the usability and stability
of the toolkit. Perhaps LeSC or GridWise can also do something to simplify
the configuration for their integration package as well? :P
