Actually, come to this of it, you make a fair point.

I'm dead against having application code in the trunk, as I'm sure everyone
else is. However shipping a few 'enhancements' with the prebuilt release
builds can only help with much needed publicity. (assuming they meet
licensing demands). They can always be dropped as we get closer to the 1.0
build (where I think user choice should take precedence via the package

WaxDragon mentioned including some of our apps like Solitaire with 0.2.8.
Although everyone seemed to like the idea, we don't have a definitive answer
Are we going ahead with this one?
