I'm fine with most of it, just two things:

- Don't touch beryl. It will be replaced with compiz when the time comes.
- I'd like to keep ogle until dvdnav support in mplayer is stable.
Despite being unmaintained upstream, it is still a good player (with a
few issues, I know)
- I don't know why we would move i18n stuff out of extra. The "default
is english, would take a lot of load away" seems arrogant, at best.
- loosing bittorrent is good IMO, it has become slow and bloated. It
uses 25% CPU on a friend's Athlon X2 3800+. Sad that utorrent has no
linux version (yet), it is THE standard bt client for windows (fast,
feature-rich, small, clean).
