With GNOME 2.22 development just now getting under way, this seems like
a good time for some fall cleaning.  There's quite a few files still
living in Subversion trunk that we did not ship for GNOME 2.20.

I've filed a series of bug reports about this, hoping that we can
collectively sift through the lists and decide what should stay and what
should go, as maybe spot files we *should* have shipped that got

I'm of the opinion that, in general, trunk should only contain what we
ship.  If we need to resurrect a file down the road we can always fetch
it from SCM archives.  Keeping dead, unshipped source code files in
trunk is especially detrimental to developers because someone will
inevitably waste time maintaining them, not realizing or forgetting
they're dead.  I've lost track of the number of times this has happened
to me.

Here's the list of bug reports.  Please to comments about specific files
to the appropriate bug.
