It may well be a dead end, it might be a good start and they may accept
patches to split out the lib or maybe we could somehow add a sugar ux which
could be a subpackage. Ultimately it might be a dead end, a place to start
or useful, I suggested it as it does all we'd like and would allow seamless
movement between Sugar and GNOME so might have made dev and ongoing
maintenance easier
