Ok. Here is a suggested migration path.

Since some users will not be able to use Tomboy (on systems that are
not Mono enabled), we should keep stickynotes around. I propose we
do the same as we currently do with mini-commander, that is by
default it will transparently upgrade people's stickynotes to

We then have a --enable-stickynotes flag, that will cause
stickynotes to be compiled and installed (installing with this flag
will also cause people's whose stickynotes to get upgraded to Tomboy
will then cause it to go back again). We then leave it up to package
distributors to decide if they want to break this out as a separate
package or not.

Sound reasonable?
