This is fine with me, so long as we're able to still support programs
that require gnome1/gtk1 libraries, and I think that the plan is to do so.
However, a couple of problems come up with gnome-control-center.
Gnome1's version gives you the only good way of changing gtk1 themes.
If users lost that ability in an upgrade, they would (potentially) be
stuck using an arbitrary theme for a really long time. In addition, the
gnome1 control-center lets you configure many other aspects of gnome1,
like MDI policies and such that span all gnome applications. This makes
control-center seem more like a "gnome1 support library" than an actual
application... and it would be great if it could be supported in the
future along with gtk1, etc.
Is there any way that gnome1's control center could remain in the
distribution, maybe with a 1 suffix?
