Eh, sorry for the lack of clarity - what I said was about Gnome in
general, not so much about the control center.  Think of infrastructure
bits that started out as distro-specific things (mounting removable
media) and ended up as real, shared infrastructure, with Gnome having a
lot to do with it.

Do we need one of those templates in Bugzilla for, "this is a downstream
problem; go bother them at $url"?

(Any idea on why people file those bugs in b.g.o rather than in the
downstream bug trackers - what process are they following that leads
them to b.g.o?)
