Well, some of them already have enough time to write a shell to handle them :) More seriously, merging some capplets is badly needed in all cases. Some of them simply need to be removed from the menu: gstreamer-properties, cddb-slave2-properties, background-properties, gdmphotosetup, nautilus-file-management-properties. For others, it is hard to justify, from a user POV, to have separate capplets for keyboard, mouse, keyboard accessibility and keyboard shortcuts. Same for sound-properties and gstreamer-properties. Or for the screensaver and gnome-power-manager capplets. Or for all interface-related capplets: metacity, fonts, menus&toolbars. I'm not saying this is easy, especially for those coming from different modules, but this would reduce the current number from 24 to 12. Which is quite an acceptable number. -- Josselin Mouette /\./\ "Do you have any more insane proposals for me?"
