My impression is that 'concerned' might be a bit of an overstatement. It
seems more like someone saw 'GNU/KNetBSD', and said "Hey, that actually
seems like it might be a better way to describe it". However, since I don't
want to cause drastic confusion or simply co-opt the name Robert has been
using (and since, as noted in the origional message, it's not quite as
accurate for the work others are doing), I wanted to raise the issue to the
Debian BSD list at large.
