Sure there are. The ones not working can be fixed, we have two months to do 
that, it should be enough.

I've fixed frame and binary clock until now, twitter is being worked on (it 
already works better than two days ago). The EBN plasmoid can go away, it 
doesn't do much more than displaying an RSS feed, and we have two other 
applets to do just that.

All in all, we can have a pretty fine module with those plasmoids.

EBN should probably go away, it hasn't seen much love anyway. The rest of the 
applets that are currently in extragear should stay (and thus move).

Alex, you were the last to put work (non-trivial porting that is) into the 
EBN. What do you think should happen to this plasmoid?
