Agree with @29 & @32 -- the privacy implications of this change are exceedingly obvious and should have been sufficient to prevent the "feature" being included by default in 12.10. If this was implemented as an opt-in feature, I can't imagine any strong opposition, but while *I* may know how to quickly remove it, my Ubuntu-using friends and family do not. Given that, I can't recommend that they upgrade to 12.10 and will be migrating to an alternate distro once 12.04 starts to feel long in the tooth.
