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

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!
