The code for the new file manager is available, but not on the GNOME
CVS -yet- it is still in a lot of flux.  Ettore can give a better
status report on this. 

Parts of the new file manager are already on CVS in the form of
gnome-vfs and in the form of bonobo (which was modified expressely to
handle various issues Ettore needed handled).

It is being addressed happilly and Federico and Ettore are discussing
the issues involved in the next generation icon-list which they are
both working on .

The window manager and the HTML engine/help browser are the other two
outstanding issues in GNOME that worry me.
