I'd still like to see acme there, even if it is deprecated in 2.4 when
we merge the functionality in the control-center. This seems to be a
fairly frequently asked for functionality, and having acme in the
Desktop release (hence in the distributions) will solve this user

It's just a matter of putting "the Multimedia Keys functionality (acme)
has been merged in the control-center" in the release notes when we get
2.4 out of the door. It's still going to be quite some time before we
get 2.4, and the users seem to need the functionality (and I don't think
the code in acme is that bad that it would deserve to be ruled out).
