If the packaging is done correctly, it should all install in parallel
- then the advantage is that people can hack on gnome-core or whatever
without having to build libs from CVS or break the desktop they're

(Well, they can do that for about 3 days until someone changes the
library API and gnome-core no longer builds against the release,
anyhow ;-)

I have Red Hat packages ready for everything except gnome-print, which
I'm trying to figure out right now.
