Individual pieces of GNOME might not be technologically breaktrough:
it is the collection of these little tools that have made GNOME be
what it is today.

I would definetly consider gfloppy part of the GNOME desktop.

It is a hack that was never quite finished, and I do not think anyone
is even using it.

imlib1 is being maintained for important bug fixes, but no development
is happening there (that is what was which included a large
set of fixes from the last Raster official 1.9.7 release).

Seems maintained by its user base, although not by Chris.

ggv should of course go in.  As does Evolution.
