    ..So.. you're forking it, contrary to what you said above. Into your own
    gnome-flashback component.

With forking I mostly was thinking about gnome-settings-daemon - it is
maintained and used by GNOME. So I don't want to fork it to just add one
or two small changes and then maintain it by cherry-picking probably all
changes from original project.

Yeah we have the same problem over in Budgie, which leads us to then
implement all kinds of lying bugger kinds of dbus interfaces and
shims to make it all stick together (i.e. org.gnome.Shell, keygrabber,
etc ..)
