[wp-hackers] Full size should mean full size

Doesn't it seem like they should then use the medium option?  Or the the 
image properties button and change the sizes?  Or upload a smaller image 
(I know, some people don't know how)?  Or at the very least that we 
should then call that option "large" since it's not full size?

I understand the though process behind it, and I can even see the need 
(for some people...many of whom run WordPress), but it seems like it's 
currently misleading, and a LOT of themes out there do not have the fix 
implemented (because it didn't exist until recently).
