GNOME core component are totally done.
The only remaining "official" apps (in -tested metamodule)  are
modules in -apps:

- gnome-applets (probably not worth porting as we are planning to
remove fallback mode)
- gupnp-dlna
- rygel

Also Id like to add a GnomeGoal to stop using x11 specific api,
so prepare GNOME for future use of wayland for example.
Any objection on this?
