Well, we'll have to switch back to police brutality then.  :-)  Time
for some beatings...the following issues are still relevant AFAICT:

Problems which don't have patches:
evolution-data-server  324546  e-d-s doesn't work with mozilla 1.8 or
                             firefox 1.5; epiphany & yelp don't work with older
                             mozilla.  We don't want to depend on both
                             (There is a patch but claims nss has to be
                             disabled for e-d-s for it to work)

Problems with patches:
gnome-system-tools     N/A     requires system-tools-backends which require
                             perl bindings to DBus; Carlos said he'd make it
                             optional here:
                             (Frederic Peters has a patch for this)
evolution-data-server  344790  won't find mozilla libraries, causes build
                             breakage in other apps like bug-buddy
gnopernicus            344695  can't find gdkx.h
gnome-mag              344295  checked-in file automatically generated/modified
deskbar-applet         345011  type -> crash (lone non-build issue in this list)
