I'm confused....the Aura page states:

"The goal is to produce a new desktop window manager and shell
environment with modern capabilities."

Are they making a KDE/GNOME equivalent or is this a new UI toolkit i.e
a Qt/Gtk equivalent?

I thought it was the later....but the statement above sounds a little confusing.
