I agree that we should get rid of the galleries we have right now. But
I imagine that stuff people might use are the bullet points and maybe
rulers. We already have dialogs dedicated to each, so if that's all we
want to ship we could drop the gallery for good. Or do corporations
make use of this?
If the new artwork adheres to the same guidelines as our icon set and
we keep them pretty simple (maybe like this:
http://ubuntuone.com/6VrP1eR0caA5zb8En6hwJD) I think they won't become
outdated that fast.
Honestly, I would prefer to drop support for built-in graphical bullets and
rulers. Not only do image bullets appear less tasteful than standard
monochrome bullets, they are also harder to work with. Rulers are also
easier dealt with as simple lines and produce much more aesthetic results.
one place this may have significance is the educational sector. School
kids are always using clip art from the gallery and lack of clip art
availability would be a decision point in our kids school.
So as not to restrict inroads into schools I think that addition of
clipart to the gallery should be easy and obvious and not require
administrator privileges (it won't happen if every click needs the IT
administrator). The bullets, backgrounds and rulers could then be part
of the one click clipart install.
