I look at it this way: it makes sense to call the project at least
'Debian NetBSD' for obvious reasons. The discussion is about wether or not
we want to add a 'GNU/'. Adding this would state that it's a major component.
However, /not/ adding it would not neccesarily mean that we don't think it's
a major component. Removing the 'GNU/' apparantly makes a lot of people here
feel better, and I don't see why it would be a problem.
Thus: one more vote to 'Debian NetBSD' (though frankly, I don't care very
much. It just seems a socially more acceptable name for some of us)
