Why do these need to be packaged in the Activity? 400Kb per Activity
is a lot of space on something like the XO-1.

Where was this discussed and decided to be a good idea? I can't help
but think this is a badly thought out distribution means.

Ultimately not a massive problem for rpm packaging because we can
explicitly exclude the screenshot directory in the package. I was
concerned it was something more concerning like a security compromise.
