Miro is a very nice program to include, although still pretty buggy in
my experience. I have some more suggestions for inclusion:

- Startupmanager: a much needed gui tool for changing grub settings.

- Brasero: Include a decent cd burning application, e.g. brasero (and
remove serpentine which is not needed anymore then). Nautilus cd
burning lacks many basic features. For many people it is also
confusing to have to do totally different things to burn a data cd and
a audio cd. One place to do it all is better.

- Transmission: Replace the very basic gnome bittorrent client with
transmission, a program with a similarly small footprint and easy to
use, but includes more basic features.

- A basic video editor would be nice to include, although none seem
mature enough at the moment to ship. Kdenlive is the most
mature/stable, but depends on the qt libraries. Perhaps pitivi could
be included when it is a bit more developed than now. Kino could also
be an option.

I hope these can be seriously considered for inclusion.
