So distribution will be limited to distribution *with* gnome ? Does this mean
lots of folks will just be dumping a bunch of gnome source tarballs / rpms
on CD-s as dead weight just so they can also include the rpm/tarball/zip 
with the fonts. Not that this is a bad thing, just 'distribution with gnome' is
a horribly vague thing.
