Well, I've been told in private email (if not on the list) that there
were some people who were going to work on g-wrap..  But if that
doesn't happen before g2 is ready to merge back into HEAD then I
agree, yes, we should move g-wrap into lib and just subsume it.

OTOH I'd also like to un-modularize much of gnucash.  The current
archicture and half-completed implementation causes more problems than
it solves.  Unfortunately I suspect it'll be a LOT of work to fix, and
I just don't have that amount of time at the moment.

We should all ponder this issue for a while and plan to discuss it
in a month or two.
