Hi argumento!

This is good input. We'll definitely take this and other suggestions
into consideration.

That said, we're a very, very small bunch and can't make a ton of
changes right now, unless we get the manpower. Bear in mind that we can
only work with what is already in the Ubuntu repositories, unless we
can get some more people working on packaging.

With that, I'd like to invite you to join us! We definitely need more
people helping to make Ubuntu Studio an even better design and
multimedia OS. With your interests, if those items you mentioned can be
packaged, we'd definitely invite you to do that as it would help to
make ideas such as yours to become realities.
