        The change is not in fact that large - and amounts mostly to a
bunch of seds. It took me only ~ 2 hours to port all of the relevant
modules to bonobo-activation, and only ~ 1 day to get the patches approved
[ mainly due to people not being awake ].

        So, I see priorities as glade / libglade, printing and gal / eel,
and any other misc. foundation libraries we need.

        Also - I hear rumours of GStreamer being used as a sound API - and
I wonder:

        * Who uses this API
        * Where is the API published ?
        * Is it frozen ? / can it be frozen now ?
        * Can we ship packages for it that don't require thousands of
          obscure support libraries ?
