gnome-utils proposal

Another gnome package proposal. It consists of useful utilities which 
are only run explicitly and for which we have no equivalents (except for 
screenshot as a panel plugin)

The utils are:

  - baobab, a disk usage analyser
   - gfloppy, a tool for formatting floppy disks
   - gnome-dictionary, a program which can look up the definition of words
     over the internet (including a panel applet to do the same)
   - gnome-search-tool, with which one can find files by name or content
   - gnome-system-log, a log viewing application
   - gnome-screenshot, a tool to take desktop screenshots and save them 
into    a file

I know there were plans of adding search to thunar and also a disk usage 
view but those have not materialized afaik. Same for floppy formatter.

Since many users would find these helpful but would not know where to 
find them if not installed I propose including them.

Pros, cons?
