I agree that there's an overlap at the ui level.  However neither of
those capplets have much remaining lifespan and the benefits of
g-v-m IMO outwight the inconsistency for this release.  2.10 should
definitely aim to
    - replace the file type capplet withsomething that works
    - sync/merge the g-v-m configuration with the cleaned up
      preferered app frontend.
