 Great!  That would make external email notifications irrelevant for
the basic gnome desktop.  Only users that specifically start using a
non-GNOME email client should ever need such standalone applets, which
means the GNOME desktop doesn't need them at all.  Of course,
distributions should probably include them anyway.

 Thanks.  I'll shut up now.
