On this list Colby expressed his interest in such a spin containing a 
video editor:

However, the tools are not ready yet: Kino can't open Ogg Theora, PiTiVi 
can't do anything useful, Cinelerra makes full use of proprietary codecs 
and so on.

Do not forget the potential legal troubles around such a spin: it would 
have to handle out of the box all the tasks using free codecs, which may 
not be what the users expect (you would not be legally able to master a 
DVD with it).
