I think characterizing this as "a crucial part of the system" might be
misrepresenting LMMS as I think Ubuntu Studio is quite functional in
numerous use cases.

We should also consider how many people are asking for LMMS. If we included
every application asked for, we would easily oversize the 4gig image. I
have been worried about making everyone download extra megs (oh, won't
someone think of the bandwidth) because one person said we should include

However, I am not opposed to including it. I just want to make sure we
evaluate the inclusion on it's own merits, that we are supported a complete
work flow (i.e. there are no other applications needed to support getting
the task done), and the user demand warrants inclusion.

I look forward to other's input.
