I've talked to Yosh about this, and he said he intend to do the move - 
but he seems to be quite busy lately. Jamesh also told he could not 
pick it alone.

I had been using it, but never had seen the code until this week - I 
am willing to help improve and maintaining it, but I lack the time 
and expertize needed to maintain a separte package all by myself. 

Over the next week, I plan at least to clean up the tabs on the 
remianing python files. The widgtes should be mostly "rewidgetziled", 
since it is currntly using String Entries for almost everything. If 
it cannot be taken apart for 2.2, that at least could be done.

I would agree with the schdules on the other itens. If there is a 
delay, maybe text-transofrms could get in, but they'd need 
PDB-entries as well.

Another thing IMHO is important, although marked as low priority in 
bugzilla is exposing the full options for the transform tools in the 
PDB  - BUG 137053 
( http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137053 )
That would make whole classes of plug-ins easier to write.
