package would be to include all the applets that have no home on
their own, but really don't need to be part of the standard desktop.
This will reduce the load on the maintainers/translators and
everyone else while not leaving older applets to die.

Applet Current Proposed Notes
------ ------ -------- -----
clock panel applets remove e-d-s dep in panel

gtik applets applets-extras
modemlights applets applets-extras
I would also like to separate the locations database out from
g-applets, since it is a huge portion of the tarball size and may
