I don't know enough about the details of how much is likely to change
- so I won't givve an opinion either way, but I will point out that a
recent discussion on gnome-dekstop-devel stated that having modules
included in a distro was a precursor to their inlusion in Gnome,
rather than the other way around...

I think someone clarified this more formally but I can't find it :S

Basically - we shouldn't stop just because it isn't in Gnome yet
