I'm sorry, but I still have the same objection :-) And talking to a few
people, I understood that I'm not alone in feeling that Boxes might not
fit core GNOME (even as a core app ).
Note that this shouldn't actually block any work on Boxes, as it does
look like a great application.
 http://live.gnome.org/Design/Apps -- just to give an example: I feel
that a backup tool makes more sense than boxes as a core app, imho. And
the wiki says that such a tool is very likely not a core app but would
make a great regular app.
Les gens heureux ne sont pas pressés.
