What about Locations.xml? This is still part of gnome-applets and (via
the weather applet dialog) is the only nice way to select a location.
Shouldn't this be split out too? Otherwise we either a) have to load an
applet specifically to set our location, or b) duplicate the
Locations.xml file (its big). Neither of these are desirable.

Obviously splitting out the "select a location" UI would be a good idea
