	I believe Steve Price, one of the leading BSD porters did
	the dpkg work; it isn't surprising that so much worked out
	of the box.

	Some N months ago the most popular idea was to do the min
	work necessary to get a DebianBSD version out the door.
	The more I think about it now, this makes a lot of sense.

	So here's wishing you gentlemen the best; hope that this 
	time some CD's come out of the idea!
