We have a good bunch of bugs that are waiting on the merge to add
features/fix bugs. Eg. I'd like Rhythmbox to be able to tag MP3 files,
Totem to play VCDs, and HAL should be rebuilt to be able to change the
brightness on Dell laptops.

We've been waiting for the merge to fix those bugs (the merge should
have happened while we weren't frozen, IIRC), otherwise, we'd have moved
some of those packages in core to be able to get this functionality.
