Please, let's be honest here. If you get firefox by default, you are not
going to install Web to get pure gnome. Nor do I.  If we get USC, I don't
think anyone will install software. No one is going to install applications
just to test and raise bugs. Even if one or two guys test applications,
that will not cover all the scenarios etc.
