Could somebody please poke the necessary folks to get the promoted from -proposed to saucy-updates so we can please end this caper?  I'm in the basement cafeteria at work so I don't have kosher IRC access until I get home in six hours or so.  This fix is past the minimum time to marinate without going kaboom.

> Bug description:
>  [Impact]
>   * The indicator menu for sound not displaying is a major user
>  interface failure.
>   * The justification for making this upload is that the number of
>  workarounds proposed are actually damaging to system integrity as well
>  as allowing for shifts between desktop environment.
>   * This patch resolves a conflict that will allow the menu to display.
>  [Test Case]
>   * Install stock Xubuntu 13.10.  The indicator menu for sound should
>  fail to display when clicking on the sound icon.
>  [Regression Potential]
>   * There is a risk of further conflict between the gtk2 and gtk3 sound indicators. In previous releases the two versions were almost identical but this changed in Saucy (this is also the reason -gtk2 broke). In particular, there is a potential for the two indicators to use gsettings configuration keys in different ways which may lead to problems. Testing should be done on systems with both Unity and Xubuntu installed.
>   * While Xubuntu is working on landing gtk3 indicators for 14.04 the landing of such for 13.10 now would be a massive change requiring approval by potentially the Technical Board.
>  [Other Info]
>   * In general Xubuntu users have been distressed over not having the indicator sound menu available which makes this an issue we would like to resolve expeditiously.
>   * Xubuntu will need to adjust its website documentation slightly to
>  note that users must select "Download updates while installing" during
>  an installation from the LiveCD to ensure this fix is picked up to
>  avoid a broken interface experience.
