You miss the point on how Debian is refined, and indeed, how
it was wrought in the first place.
Debian is the end result of a whole bunch of people trying to
create something that they find satisfactory, and work is mostly done
when something is unsatisfactory to the people doing the work.
So, if we like playing angband; it does not matter that we do
not have visible sweat on Sauron's brow in Debian.
