GNOME category:

Yes, sounds reasonable to me.  Ask the maintainer...

Yes, can both be installed. Must do it like with BDB2/3/4 then because
of the headers and import libs, but it works.  Jari replied, I sent my
pactches.  Is sqlite2 required for libgda or does it work with sqlite3
too?  If not we should skip sqlite2.

Yes, ok, will do so.

Nautilus 2.4 was different, they use now gnome-vfs stuff to get the
available mounts, probably the fix needs to be placed in gnome-vfs.

We don't introduce bugs, do we?
