	Well, I'm kind of of the opinion that we should split gnome-applets up
and this applet should go into one of those groups ... but I'm not sure
whether its worth the work.

	But sure, I tend to agree with you. I'm still concerned that
gnome-network seems like a pretty arbitrary grouping of utilities[1] and
that it should be split up. People didn't seem to agree with me the last
time I suggested that, so that's why I'm still considering putting the
applet into gnome-network as an option.


[1] - And again - I'm not trying to put a downer on gnome-network. Doing
that work under the same *project* is a great idea as far as I'm
concerned. I just don't think they need to be in the same CVS module or
tarball. And I certainly don't think it makes sense for the decision to
include them in the desktop to be an all-or-nothing decision ...
