Nice! So it happens at last.

The upgrade went fine, and it replaced most of the
gnome-control-center* packages with the unity-* counterparts, except
$ dpkg -l *control-center*|grep ^ii
ii activity-log-manager-control-center 0.9.7-0ubuntu4+unity all blacklist configuration for Zeitgeist (transitional package)
ii gnome-control-center-data 1:3.8.6-0ubuntu1+unity all configuration applets for GNOME - data files
ii libgnome-control-center1 1:3.6.3-0ubuntu49 amd64 utilities to configure the GNOME desktop
ii libunity-control-center1 1.0 amd64 utilities to configure the GNOME desktop
ii unity-control-center 1.0 amd64 utilities to configure the GNOME desktop
ii unity-control-center-data 1.0 all configuration applets for GNOME - data files
ii unity-control-center-signon 0.1.7~+14.04.20131126.2-0ubuntu1+unity amd64 Unity Control Center extension for single signon
It seems to me that if we want to add a "real" gnome-control-center,
-data should be migrated as well? Or does u-c-c not need this at all?
(Then it should be cleaned up on upgrade, or get owned by the "real"
After upgrading, the menu entry from the session indicator doesn't
work. This needs a "pkill -f indicator-session-service" or a reboot;
could the pkill perhaps be put into the postinst?
The new control-center window is too wide, but this is probably
related to the transition to GTK 3.10, not due to u-c-c itself.
Many entries are now untranslated, I guess this also changed the
translation domain? Can we copy the translations from g-c-c, so that
they get imported into LP?
