If we are going to staret removing packages because of the
quality of the software, wonderful. I move to remove all traces of
the travesty of editors, vi, from Debian, since obviously as editors
they are less than alpha quality software.
I also want to remove csh and variants, cause they all suck
And we should remove them right now, like yesterday.
Since when has Debian yanked software that seems to work based
on quality? It is not as if there were higher quality older versions
that were superceded by inferior versins; this is new software, and
not likely to violate the principle of least surprise.
Men are machines, with all their boasted freedom, Their movements
turn on some favorite passion; Let art but find the foible out, We
touch the spring and wind them at our pleasure. -- Brooke
