Ok, I went too far, Terminal works. But I doesn't answer to
'Terminal/Open shell here' service needed by GWorkspace for example.
Running midnight commander inside it is... interesting. But yes, it
works as a terminal for most things. Sorry :o)

Don't get me wrong : I'm not opposed to multiple applications having
the same goal. I just think the GNUstep project should select a set of
applications and promote them as the minimal environnement. If I want
to add a settings module, should I add it to Preferences,
SystemPreferences or both ? Not necessarily a big deal but it might be
confusing for users.

If nested functions are answer, you've got the wrong question. Al Viro
