So not only are we saying to them, you can stay in the gnome-applets module, we're
also kicking them out of GNOME CVS? While I agree in principle with getting rid of
the cruft, it would be better to try and keep all the good applets in some sort
of central location...and this includes incorporating new applets that people have
written and we want to include into GNOME..
I dunno though...
