[wp-hackers] Full size should mean full size

I talked about it a little in a recent post 
(http://xavisys.com/wordpress-25-first-impressions/), but one of the 
most annoying things of 2.5 is that when you insert an image as "full 
size" it isn't full size at all.  It has a max width of 500px, unless 
you have set $content_width in your themes functions.php file (a global 
that, as far as I know, has not been used before, and does not exist is 
the vast majority of themes)!  If you want thumbnail, medium, and large, 
then call it that, but still give us a full size option.  I added my 
opinion to the tickets as well (http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5777 
and http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6086), but I'm sure I'm not the 
only one that feels this way.  Should I submit a ticket to put it back?  
Or am I in the minority?
