Or, opposite? x11/gnome2-desktop have the Whole Damn Thing. I think,
x11/gnome2 should be stick to what www.gnome.org has.

>> x11/gnome2-fifth-toe (Will consist of the following):
>> graphics/gthumb2 news/pan2 net/gnomeicu2
>> x11-toolkits/gnome-themes-extras sysutils/gkrellm
>> graphics/gimp-devel www/bluefish-devel
>> net/tsclient graphics/sodipodi
graphics/inkscape is doing a lot better than graphics/sodipodi now, so
should be either add or replace imo.

I couldn't see how gkrellm can be part of Gnome, so I am disagree for
gkrellm to be part of Gnome's meta port.
Anyway, it won't be easy to make that kind of decision...too many apps..
