I did briefly look at
but quickly got lost as that appears to be just the client-side GLib
glue. And some of the other stuff looked pretty specific to Meego.

Oh, it's not so much that I had any unresolved concerns - I was just
pointing out that I was aware that I knew that I have to be careful

Can you give a short overview of exactly what components that you've
written that GNOME would use (including their dependencies and whether
it's a per-session daemon, per-system daemon or shared library), what
GNOME would need to write itself and how it would fit together with
the UX that I've described? I mean, obviously accounts-glib would be
an external dep and obviously we'd write our own GNOME Control Center
panel ... but what else? I'm asking mostly to figure out what
additional dependencies this would add to GNOME if we were to use it!
