	I'm really having trouble parsing those two paragraphs, so let me just
clarify what I'm saying:

  1) Go ahead and import the smproxy code into a new module

  2) This won't be part of the GNOME release set

  3) When you go to actually ship smproxy, you'll probably want to look
     into fixing the problems above which smproxy cause. However, one of
     the explicit reasons we're dropping smproxy is that it causes
     problems like this. So, I wouldn't expect upstream to care about
     the problems.
