non-core gnome2 apps for release notes

Filling in desktop-devel and gtk-app-devel: this is a list of non-core
apps that have already started to build/develop/port with gtk2 and
gnome2 that we'd like to mention in the release notes. If there is
anything you know about that isn't listed here, please let jfleck and
desktop-devel know so that we can list your app in the release notes.

The list starts with my contributions, but I've edited and added
contributions for others that came in earlier in the week. There are
also some I don't have details on (like gaim); any information that can
be contributed would be appreciated.

Not packaged yet, but is in CVS. I think that's good enough for
inclusion, maybe?
