Maybe we could just revive 5th toe and set some real criteria for
inclusion this time around? I seem to remember that a lot of the modules
in 5th toe ended up in the core release after some time. stickynotes,
gucharmap, gok, seahorse, zenity, totem, gnomemeeting/ekiga etc.

This is a very good idea and lack of this is probably what turned 5th
toe into "everything in SVN that isn't in a real release set", or maybe
my memory of all this is starting to fade :-)
Anyway, I'm all for this regardless of branding details :-)
