This is getting really late in the game for gnome-system-tools.  We have
less than a month until the 2.6 release, and g-s-t is almost completely
undocumented.  This is a rather largeish module to document, and I doubt
we'll be able to write good documentation from scratch in a month.

Really, maintainers should make an effort to get documentation before
they propose their module for inclusion.
