This would remove upstream's branding which is something upstream
don't want us to do (understandably). KDE provides a space for distro

This is quite time consuming because it requires a lot of QA, and
doesn't provide much benefit because the packags are already available
in a PPA. But Scott has said he wants to do it.

Upstream aren't keen on this, I think because it might slow it down
and take up disk space. But I would prefer it. I'll see if I can
turn it on for the next alpha.

kaffeine doesn't use Phonon so features such as USB headphones don't
work. vlc has a very confusing UI.

The installer uses debian-installer which talks to debconf and that
limits the speed between pages.

installer menu" is?
Thanks for the suggestions.
