I agree totally with the sentiments here.  I got in the habit of
calling them "legacy apps" back when OLPC was convinced that it was
going to be the largest linux distro overnight, and the world would
bow to our "standards".  Really, what I mean is "dogfooding Sugar" --
I want to use Sugar as my normal everyday desktop environment.

Maybe I should retitle my proposal, "Making Sugar fit to feed to dogs". ;-)
