To throw something in:
      * target 1: showcase of design team work (perhaps customise the
        looks of the spin, add more wallpapers, include echo icons?)
      * target 2: typesetting -- fonts, inkscape, TeX, color profiles
        are IMHO a must
      * target 3: general art/design work -- gimp, inkscape, color
        profiles, brushes, perhaps our echo-artist helper scripts, ...
      * target 4: video editing -- something for screencasting,
        something to grab raw video from video camera, pitivi or kino or
        something like that for cutting, perhaps an app for sound
        editing/recording, include dirac/schrodinger codec (I think
        theora, vorbis, flac, etc. are already in), perhaps some app for
        subtitling (I'm maintaining subtitleeditor myself, but there are
      * target 5: desktop publishing -- OpenOffice.org + templates,

And of course customised bookmarks.
