I feel not to change upstream's name. I threw the gnome in because
"Ticker" is too simple and basic. I will admit that gnome-ticker is a
bit broad as well, however this application has plenty of room to meet
the broad description as it is only at version 0.1.

I always try to stay close to what upstream names and describes about
"their" application. The wonderful thing about our package system is
being able to change these things as we go. Upstreams description is a
bit underpowered, but will change as it matures into a more powerful
