Not entirely true, the new app might save space on the CD, and by our
adopting it, it can spur on more stabilization than might have happened

In any case, a decision like this really only affects new installs.
It's not like f-spot would go away entirely; people who already have it
installed will still have it on upgrade.  Those who do fresh reinstalls
and still want f-spot can always still install it.  Others will
have something new to try out.
