If the concern is over the proliferation of CVS modules, it seems to me
the gnome-applets module could be made hierarchical, with applets
being grouped within the module, each with its own autogen.sh, buildable
when checked out alone (or perhaps in combination with
cvs co gnome-applets/common
cvs co gnome-applets/core-applets
cvs co gnome-applets/extras
cvs co gnome-applets/dont-bother-with-these ;-)
