1) I chose the Ubuntu skin over the former non-free blue one because I
   modified the skin on which it is based.
2) I oppose beep-media-player being chosen by default instead of
   Rhythmbox on account of bmp being ended-of-life. Upstream is not
   supporting bmp at all but instead concentrating efforts on bmpX,
   which uses a completely new theme engine as well as being based on
   either gstreamer or xine.
