  Description     : GObject based IO abstraction layer

I plan to package gio-standalone for experimental once the first test
releases are done. gio-standalone will most probably be merged into
glib at some point.

This will go to unstable once either a) the API has stabilized or b) it
was merged into glib.

I expect many Gnome 2.19/2.20 apps to depend on this fairly early in
the Gnome 2.19 cycle.

As GIO was now already merged into glib and will be in the coming 2.15.2
release I'll close this bug and instead package the new glib for
