Joey has been helping intensively for the last few weeks, (thanks!)
while Bastian has been helping actively for the past several months
(thanks, too!). I thought it was probably a little off the mark to lob
"quit checking in broken code" out there. Which of us has never made a
mistake? I wonder how many commits Bastian has made on d-i vs. Joey.
Also, Joey wasn't here for the thorough bloat removal that Bastian
just did with libd-i. So his remarks about bloat, coupled with the
