It would be nice if such a "list of tweaks" existed someplace (perhaps
in the wiki).

For example, I'm currently running Firefox 4.07b on my XOs.  Now that
you've explained that Firefox can benefit from having totem be the
helper application for video playback -- I can myself apply that change
to the Firefox version I installed.  Without knowing that this tweak is
useful, I would not have considered adding totem.

Thanks,  mikus
