In earlier versions, there were simply no stamps, and therefore the
"Stamp" tool was unavailable.  (Users could, of course, add their own
PNG files to the stamps folder -- user's or global -- and it would work.)

These days, I include the little example Tux penguin ones with the
default app.

In the future, the stamps collection will be huge and all-encompassing, and
released as separate downloads. :^)  Some day...

I forget if it recommends or requires, or what...  the fellow who maintains
the Debian package is actually part of the project, too. ;)

Yeah, I'm beginning to, too!  (Of course, my wife's main system is her
IBM T20 laptop, which is slowly falling apart. :^/  So her first!)
