I left that out for now.  I know we're desperately trying to kill it dead.  
I'd rather it be something that somebody has to go out and get if X doesn't 
automagically work (usually at the guidance of somebody who can also guide 
them to file a bug to get X working) rather than it just being there and we 
lose the opportunity to make X Just Work for their hardware.

Those all seem sane.

This one, I'm not so sure.  We have gnome-user-share already for creating 
shares, does that not work with Windows systems?
