Banshee by default in Intrepid

And there goes another reason why such proposals and suggestions
should be replaced with nice, cute, understandable feature sheet aka
HIG or LSB. People don't like removed features and it should be taken
into account. And it is better to fix application than propose new
replacement. And even if you have to remove some element for
stability/features sake, old features must work as the new ones.

Is there any interest in creating that kind of "LSB for desktop
features" - or is there already something like this? As far as I see,
it would help desktop testing a lot and would help with priorities in
bug fixing.

Last years RB has grown in feature set and stability. All I want to
see is evolutionary upgrades as last several releases.
