I think making xguest more accessible is a Good Thing (tm) and that
having it in the live images/installed by default is a part of that.
But the other part is perhaps the "how do I make it easy to turn off" --
right now, that involves removing the package afaik.  Having it be an
easy "turn off the account in system-config-users[1]" would probably
make it even more awesome.

That said, let's put it in the beta and see what more people think :-)
Worst case is we get some xguest testing with the beta (which isn't bad


[1] Or whatever tool we're saying is used for graphically
adding/removing users today :)
