Or even Photo CD's, see http://www.disctronics.co.uk/technology/cd-
rom/photocd.htm for some background (question: do we have applications
to generate Photo CD's?)

I think these are good questions to consider for FC4 (and perhaps even
doing it upstream in gnome-volume-manager for GNOME 2.10), but right now
it's probably not a too good idea change the defaults too much for FC3
considering that test3 is out soon and after that it's the final. That's
my opinion anyway.
