Replace package UNetbootin with FUSBi?

UNetbootin can install a variety of distros while FUSBi only installs the FSF approved distros.

UNetbootin is currently in the repos unlike FUSBi.

I'll remove Unetbootin -I didn't know it was in the repo- since it promotes non-free distros. FUSBi wasn't updated in the last year and a half, and it does not list Trisquel (although you can manually use our isos with it), so I won't add it.

We already include the usb-creator app, so Unetbootin can be harmlessly removed.

I didn't notice Trisquel wasn't included. The description says "FUSBi supports automated installation of of all the FSF-endorsed Free Software GNU/Linux Distributions" so I will email the author to include Trisquel. Stay tuned. And thanks!

Ali hasn't updated that application in forever, and it's disappointing that he hasn't, since it's relatively simple to make those kinds of changes to the software. In terms of code, FUSBi is 99.9% the same thing as UNetbootin.

Kinda late now but I mailed Ali and he said if Trisquel wants to be on the list then Trisquel will add itself there. I guess it is reasonable.
