I think Jesktop is a real cool concept/idea, and it is must be considered 
as a huge project itself (and not included as a part of something). The 
fact is that such project has either a lots of supporters and became 
successfully, or less support and quiet few evolutions.

I've always dreamed coding for such project but lets face it, to have a 
descent complete product, we should all works hours and hours to rebuild a 
lots of common tools that are well known and not so funky to reimplement.

Moving it to sourceforge could open the project to many developers around, 
and may build a community, as it should be.
