Sorry, I was refering to "blind users" :-)

Thought so.

Yes, which brings up another question which I'm unsure about:  How to
handle this configuration setting?  It seems like it is a global

I don't think we can set this in gnopernicus postinst?

debian/rocks, doesn't it :-).  OK, I guess I'll take it then, thanks a bundle
for all the work you invested so far.
