Last time I set up FCKEditor I had a few problems. I had trouble making 
the preview match up exactly with the style for the published node. I 
found FCKEditor slow to load and it required some custom Javascript to 
make it possible to turn it on and off. And there's also set up that has 
to be done for the toolbars. My biggest concern with FCKEditor though 
was that I had cases where I'd lose changes when editing HTML by hand 
then switching back to wysiwyg mode. That said, I do still think it's 
the best cross-browser wysiwyg editor and I still have the configuration 
I worked on previously. I can put it up on PlanetSVG and we can try it out.

I haven't done a lot with image upload yet but I know there are a few 
good image modules out there (IMCE being one of them). I think we need 
something and will get to it but it could take me a while. If anyone 
else wants to work on this just let me know and I can set you up with 
Subversion access and help you set up a local development copy of the site.

Rob Russell
