weeell, I am not the one alone. Not all upstreams have many releases
following each other in short time and for many Debian revisions
come more often than upstream releases...
The specific example I brought was openoffice.org where he have to remove
some stuff (LZW, some non-free docs, ..) and it would be immensly wasteful
making that native.
No, I don't consider this, but think when someone wants to package a
large game and makes this native.....
(see vegastrike-data on how big game data could be...)
