IMHO sure it would.  It would benefit from all of the image manipulation
that the gimp offers and not have to re-invent the wheel.

And those who don't have it installed because they don't know how to use
it be damned?  I have it installed, but I'd hardly say I know how to use
it.  It has some basic understand that needs to happen before you can be
useful with it.

However, with just the need for some "cooked up" recipes, f-spot could
have all of the image manipulation capabilities of the gimp.

As an optional dependency (i.e. you don't install the gimp, you don't
get no image manipulation abilities) who cares?

Other projects work like this, dvd::rip is one.  You install
dependencies for the things you want to be able to do.
