right, also the remote shell client, which is getting now many UI
changes. It should IMO be also included in this bunch.

I agree on this. I have never been very fond of the PWS, specially with
the dependency on libcherokee, and, also, that it is a hack to fix the
file sharing problem, which should be implemented in a better way, IMO.

the current work on the shell client is to make it a window, which is
kept open, so that you can start several remote shells from that window.
Also, we are working on having profiles, to quickly starting remote
shells, as the gnome-remote-desktop tool does.

What else do you have in mind?

gnome-network should work on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris.

right, libzvt is not needed, unless we re-enable gnome-ppp (with all its
old bugs). Removing that dependency now.

About libvncserver, I guess we could probably include it in the sources,
if having it as an external dependency is a problem. I would prefer to
avoid that though.

About cherokee, it's not a problem if we disable the PWS.
