Default the whole gnome stack should not depend on metacity

Hello,

As the subject says, the whole gnome sack depend on metacity which is,
in my opinion, wrong. This happens through nodoka-metacity-theme which
depends on metacity, and then fedora-gnome-theme depends on
nodoka-metacity-theme and libgnome depends on fedora-gnome-theme.
Installing a gnome app should not lead to installing a window manager.

Could this be fixed a way or another?
There is a bug here, but it looks like the nodoka-metacity-theme
packager thinks that his package is only useful with metacity.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=398521

The chain could also be broken higher, but please fix it, it has already
been reported some time ago.

Known issue for a months (I told about redundancy of metacity and its
freaky dependencies months ago in this list). AFAIK nobody cares.

metacity is a dependency of firstboot and system-config-display, so I don't see
it go off the KDE Live CD any time soon, even if the particular dependency
chain you're complaining about gets fixed.

As for the XFCE spin, doesn't that one contain firstboot and
system-config-display?

Having metacity a dependency of system-config-display and firstboot
makes sense, but not as a dependency of the gnome stack. Having metacity
installed in the default case is not an issue, not being able to remove
it is wrong.

True:

$ rpm -q --requires libgnome
(...)
fedora-gnome-theme >= 8.0.0
(...)
