Bug#487636: gnome-applets: please split the weather applet out (disk usage)

Package: gnome-applets
Version: 2.22.2-1
Severity: wishlist

the weather applet pulls in libgweather1 which in turn
pulls in libgwather-common, with a combined payload of
nearly 50MB unpacked. I never use the weather applet but I
do use others occasionally.

Please split the weather applet out into a separate package
recommended by gnome-applets so it is possible to remove
that if it isn't wanted.
