Bug#409178: gnome-applets-data: Please put the weather applet to a separate package

Package: gnome-applets-data
Version: 2.14.3-4
Severity: wishlist

I installed the gnome-applets package to get the system and battery
monitor applets.  It took 40MB of disk space, and a closer examination
revealed this:

-rw-r--r--   1 root root 20877053 2007-01-03 20:56

Since I'm not using the weather applet, I'm rather annoyed at this waste
of disk space.  Deleting the file manually is a sub-optimal solution,
since it would just come back at each update of the package.
