GnomeVFS dependencies

looks like quite a few GNOME programs use GnomeVFS but not the rest
of GNOME libs like bonobo, libgnomeui, libgnome.

For instance evince-gtk is no longer our patched version but an upstream
variant that left GVfs deps.

I am considering allowing GNOME apps that depend on GVfs only into the default
xubuntu install. It would allow us to reuse more of GNOME/Ubuntu and not divert
our efforts on maintaining separate apps.

What about adding gnome-nettool (GTK only) and gnome-system-monitor (uses GtkMM and
GnomeVFS) to Xubuntu? The latter would replace xfce4-taskmanager and could be used
instead of a few unmaintained panel plugins.
