oooh... Excellent!  I think a good demo spin would incorporate some of
this kind of media as well.  Then when someone gets their shiny Fedora
USB key home and sits down to do some work on their computer they can
fire up GIMP and replay the video as a step by step tutorial.  Having
both the video and the apps is greater than having each by themselves.
