Here's my personal opinion.

I'm opposed to have another library for general widgets in GNOME. This
should go in GTK+ or we shouldn't use them. This just like saying we'll
put some more widgets in libgnomeui while some people are trying to kill

I might be alone in thinking this, though ;-)

I'd like to wait for 2.16 for gnome-power-manager. It looks great, but
it doesn't look integrated enough to me, yet. Do we need to rush to
accept a module in the desktop set? I don't think so. Many distributions
will use it anyway. We should only accept it when we think it's ready
for GNOME. (Note that it happened for quite a few modules in the past to
have to wait a few release cycles before being integrated)
