Livna can *not* be included in the default fedora setup because it
includes software that either has potential patent conflicts (mp3
support) or isn't open source (ATI/nVidia binary drivers).

If you care about patent problems or want your system to be open source
software only, don't install Livna.  If you don't care and you want mp3
support or binary drivers, go ahead and install it.
