I heard the same thing about goffice and gnumeric, but wasn't sure of 
the side effects of enabling gio...  like, does it require other parts 
of GNOME to avoid routing data to a black hole?  I know there are gio 
things already included in glib, and had verified that libgsf compiles 
just fine with gio enabled.

Probably it's something to float now in -current, but it seemed a little 
too risky as 13.0 approached.
