syslog :P
(for default install)

Seriously, IIRC udisks v1. I try to avoid lower level stuff, so looked
through the alpha live dvd to figure out more… Stuff that should
eventually be removed is gnome-keyring (in favour of the freedesktop
libsecret). Aside from that gconf, gstreamer 0.10, bonobo+orbit.

Wonder about: usermode (no clue what it does :P). Also noticed GNOME
live dvd (Mageia 3) having xdm + gdm.. seems a bit of a waste.

ConsoleKit removal seem to have gone well, didn't notice anything going
wrong within GNOME.
