xscreensaver-gl-extras (could go in extras)
desktop-backgrounds-extra (could go in extras)
ggv,gpdf (I think evince can hanlde most stuff, and we still have gs and xpdf)
rpmdb-fedora (is this used anywhere else than rpm --redhatprovides/requires?)
kdeartwork-icons (could go in extras)
comps (what needs/uses this?)
HelixPlayer and/or xmms
samba-swat (it's as useful as the man page but not much more)
