[tex-live] tlpmgui is too silent

I've just downloaded the last snapshot and got my first impression of tlpmgui.

It's quite a nice thing, probably quite useful for the non-expert.

But: For the expert, it's much too silent:
- There is no option to set TLroot; it just silently overwrote my old
TeX installation (I had a fresh backup, so no worries) and it never
told me this
- The (german) help you get by pressing "help" is outdated: I see no
options for system, directories and options.

Sorry for the late testing.
