Nevertheless there are about 4500 F7 users installed kmod-ntfs from
livna. I'd assume they didn't do that by accident. And I'd further
assume most howtos these days will describe ntfs-3g, so I bet a good
percentage of those 4500 chose the older one for a reason.

Sure -- just make ntfs-3g the default. Then normal users are happy and
those that want the old stuff can use it easily.
