Well, I might be able to take on gtkam and libexif-gtk, just to make
some users happy. But, the problem now lies in this bug report,
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/10074 someone wants gtkam withouth gnome
dependencies, but gnome users would want gtkam with gnome dependencies.

Here is what I have found, if I compile gtkam with libbonoboui and
libgnomeui installed they are picked as dependencies, and if I remove
them afterwards gtkam does not start at all, so they are not and cannot
be makedepends only.

Are we all OK with making gtkam use GNOME dependencies? Or do you have
other suggestions?
