False dichotomy - intelligent choice of front-page content is orthogonal 
to choice of collection content.  I'm perfectly content for Commons to 
have 100,000+ penis photos, indeed a large number starts to make it 
statistically interesting, but that doesn't mean I think that changing 
PotD to mean "Penis of the Day" is a good idea.
