Seems fine to me, EXCEPT, You use Helix GNOME version and refer to things as
Helix GNOME.  It should refer to the real package version.  We need to make
this all work nicely if the user has non-Helix GNOME or Helix GNOME and
upgrades from one to the other or vice versa.  Also refering to GNOME in cvs
as Helix GNOME is wrong as it is not Helix GNOME, but just GNOME.

Anyway otherwise if you fix that I think you should just commit.  (as long as
it works, I haven't tried it, just looked at the patch)
