Distros have made their own system tools because GNOME has not provided any.
We can either wait for that to change miraculously or start to fix the
problem. We will not replace all of the RedHat system tools at once, but
maybe we can replace them gradually. Maybe first Time, then Users, then
Networking, but that's up to RedHat.

If we have system tools in GNOME then maybe the distros will contribute
their experience. They don't want to write their own - they want to get it
for free.

That seems to be the case. I'd like us get started on it.
