I had thought it was a Featured App already.  When modulesets got
redesigned during my previous proposal, I thought that was the
outcome.  But it's not in that list, true.  Are Featured Apps still a
thing in 3.2?  I don't see the corresponding ThreePointOne page.

I'd be interested in hearing from designers if there's any
intersection here too.

Hrm.  I do have a need to clean up the jhbuild sets.  I also know that
older modulesets should be pointing at the branches of DD, not trunk.
I will fix that soon.

I expect to allow building both a panel and a window versions of the
preferences.  That way, any distros that intend to follow through with
re-adding the panel API can get a better experience if they want to.
