No problem, I am not the best at communicating things. It is not a setup
that would be really useful to you I think. You would try (from a security
POV) to be as unobtrusive as possible. I think you are already using the
best model for what you do. Aside from ethical reasons your policy makes
it harder to get bought off. (or maybe that is a part of ethical too)

Actually, that was my point. there are very few applications for what I
was describing. Almost all video production on a PC is of the gather bits
now, edit later or show later. I think we can cover that just fine. Scott
is still interested in shipping kdenlive, so we may become more kde-ish...
like what would stop us from including krita or digikam at that point?

On another topic, the partition management in ubiquity seems to have
expanded some. Is it now possible from this install to encrypt the drive?
(partition I guess) Just so you know, there is a project on the go to
combine the live/alternate image onto one ISO, without doubling it's size.
