Totem and Rhythmbox are notable examples.

What about libnotify, libunique and libxml2? They're fairly commonly
used, but I'm not sure if we should be pushing them. There's still talk
of including the functionality of the first two in GTK+/GLib, while
libxml2 is hardly a shining example of a usable or well-documented

What about jhbuild, Alleyoop and D-Feet for applications? jhbuild is
vital for anyone wanting to build GNOME, Alleyoop is in the same vein as
Nemiver, and D-Feet should be pushed if you're pushing D-Bus.

I've got no problems with the rest of the list. :-)
