I'm starting to move code from the CVS module slab to our
control-center. So, this means just moving the slab/control-center code
to our module, which is easy. The problem is with libslab/libtile and
the util/ dir. The idea so far has been to leave them in slab and set
them up as virtual modules for control-center and later, if accepted,
into the panel (for the slab's menu applet).

But I just started thinking about having all this code into a
libgnomecontrolcenter that, later, if accepted, the panel could use.
What do you think?
Following on this, I'm looking (and almost starting) to merge all the
libs we have in c-c into a single libgnomecontrolcenter library. That
means putting libbackground and libwindow-settings, and, if we all
agree, libslab and libtile (while we look for a better place).

Anyone has anything against this? I guess we don't have ABI/API
problems, since they're not platform libraries, right?
Personally, I think moving slab into a libgnomecontrolcenter would be a bit inconvenient if it might also be used in the panel. I mean, why should gnome-panel depend on a gnomecc library?

let me answer you with a question :) why should the panel, and the c-c,
depend on 2 more libraries (libslab and libtile), not in the platform?

Of course, we could solve it by adding both libs to both modules as
virtual CVS dirs, but that means having 2 copies of the same library in
2 apps that are running always in all gnome desktops. Of course, not a
huge problem, but why should we prefer that over a clean and, hopefully
in the future, in the platform, libgnomecontrolcenter?
Well, OK, you're right in this respect :). My actual concern is the naming "libgnomecontrolcenter" for a library that is both used by gnome-cc and the panel. But to be honest I don't know a better name ;), so I don't really mind if we just stick with libgnomecontrolcenter.

good point, and in fact having that libgnomecontrolcenter is a first
step towards the wider libgnomeextensions that has been mentioned in the
'GNOME desktop integration lib' thread on d-d-l. So yeah, I guess we
want to start having it in control-center, and as we clean it up and
make it better, put it in a common place for all GNOME apps to use it.

Also, having the panel depend on the c-c shouldn't be that hard if we,
as I've been thinking, splitted the capplet from it. The c-c would just
then be the lib and the settings daemon.

Sounds nice. Tell me when the real coding work starts ;).
