Those capplets were wanted enough to have been made, so obviously they 
scratch someones itch. Or in other words they're usefull to someone even if 
they're not usefull to you personally.

Besides didn't you imply earlier ([1],[2]) that gnome was consolidating 
features, not removing them? So Which is it?

The above paragraph only succeeds in reinforcing my believe that the gnome 
usability engineers cut and ran instead of adressing the actual scaling 
problem. And the above seems to indicate gnome's all set on doing it all 
over again. I'm gonna guess that was not the picture you were trying to 

By all means merge the ones that can be merged, but do everyone a favor and 
do _not_ remove the remaining ones even if you consider them useless: if 
someone went trough all the trouble of creating it and getting it included 
it's obviously usefull to someone.
