Yes. But the gnome2 contents list is not a random selection of programs -
the result still has to be a usable (if minimal) desktop. Whetever the
application programs you use on tyop of the desktop come from cde, kde,
gnome1 or something else entirely is up to the user. But teh desktop
itself should provide a certain amount of facilities.

Sure. But presently there is a gnome cd player that integrates well with
gnome (and will continue to do so) - something that is not guranteed in
case of "thrid party" cd players. There is still nothing that keeps people
from using other players.

get xmms/grip ported, to a state that the usability/accessability people
are happy with it and we migt re-open the issue for gnome 2.2 8-)
