Wish list for Xubuntu 13.04

As suggested by ochosi on IRC, I would like to discuss this wish list
for Xubuntu 13.04 with you:

1. LibreOffice in the iso instead of Abiword and Gnumeric. Xubuntu is
a full fledged alternative for the big boys Unity, Gnome and KDE. So
it needs to have a professional office suite by default. Note that I
*like* Abiword; heck, I even translate it upstream. But it's natural
place is in a mini like Lubuntu...

2. Synaptic and GDebi in the iso. Especially Synaptic is such a cool
professional tool...

Of course you can install it afterwards. But first impressions are
important: the default installation of Xubuntu should be a powerful
statement about it's coolness.

I suppose this would mean a DVD iso instead of a CD iso. But CD's are
dying anyway; when I go to a store, it's nearly all DVD+R and DVD+RW
that I see on the shelves. Somewhere tucked away you can still find
CD-R's, if you're lucky.

What do you think?

Regards, Pjotr.
