Did we ever intend to restrict the number of packages in Debian ?
If we've got 8 httpd packages I see, except for license or technical (e.g.
security) issues, no reasons why we shouldn't allow more httpds in the
distribution ? Debian was always about choice and as long as somebody is
properly maintaining the packages I don't think we should change.

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
