I have nothing against mono myself but in my opinion rhythmbox and 
gthumb cover the basic needs one may have. I sometimes wanted to use 
f-spot but the fact that it copies all the pics in its own folder gives 
   an "alien" and feeling to it, in the sense that it seems to me the 
program is doing something I didn't ask for (pictures take lot of space).

Regarding tomboy, I want to point out this: many times in the past, I 
have been told that my requests of reverting certain upgrades (e.g. the 
intel driver, which is currently badly broken in jaunty, even if there 
are hopes for karmic) are not well motivated because you got to know how 
frequent is the use case. That's a good excuse for everything, then: how 
frequent is the tomboy use case? I NEVER saw anybody using it at all. 
Please do not reply "I use it". I know there are users, indeed. The 
point is, having it by default makes few sense if less than 10% uses it.

So if we really wished, we could make mono optional. Even if it will 
surely not happen.
