Re: new modules consensus

Mark, d-d-l,

I'll comment only on where I'm in disagreement with Mark, or where I
have something to add ;-)

We should also not forget that provided Evolution team doesn't
fulfill aforementioned goals to integration (switching over
Bugzilla's, resolving copyright issues, whatever else is there), we
*ARE* able to remove it from the future official Gnome D&DP releases, 
even if we include it now.

So, armed with that possibility as well, I can hardly see a reason
not to vote (b) myself now ;-)

I remember similar conlusions being made in 2.4 and 2.6 time.  So,
I'd vote for including it NOW in 2.8, provided anything which is
still lacking is fixed post-inclusion (as in choice b. for evo ;-).
