I, for one, would like to welcome our new disk management overlords.
also, in reference to the gnome-utils plans I mailed to gnome-utils-list
last month, I'd also say that gfloppy's life (or, better, the end
thereof) is pretty much tied to DeviceKit-disks and gnome-disk-utility.
hence, I'd love to get gnome-disk-utility as part of GNOME's desktop
suite so that we can finally have a modern disk management.
