Speaking of saving space on the LiveCD, I note on
that F-Spot is supposed to be bumped (in favor of Shotwell) for
Maverick.  Does this mean that we can finally remove Mono now too?
(Tomboy can be replaced with Gnote; gBrainy can be replaced with some
other game... it's not like there aren't lots to pick from :)  Anyone
have an estimate of how much space would be saved by doing that?
