That's right, we don't need it.  It's part of the groupinstall, but it's
not depended on otherwise (and was split out so that people could choose
to omit it).

Yep, sounds good.

I think the reason we're using GConf2-dbus is actually that plain GConf2
didn't work with Rainbow's preforking code after the move to F10, but
we've reverted that preforking code for the moment, so perhaps we could
just use plain GConf2..
