The clock would be great. Boot manager is not terribly compelling
(though it is of some use, certainely), and the runlevel editor is
terribly hampered usability-wise by its use of the Unix runlevel ideas
(which are rather complex and confusing). So.... if the network tool
(which is possibly the most useful of the bunch) isn't in working shape,
I think there's a compelling argument that we should not include gst in
the 2.4 release.
