It's also pretty crashy.  I'd say it crashes for me about once a week, but
then I just restart it and it seems happy again for a while.

Even with all its problems, I still like having a weather indicator on my
desktop.  I'd vote for keeping it for Raring, but giving us through S to fix
the more egregious of the problems, or replacing it with something more

Time permitting, I'd be willing to work with others to help improve it.
