Exactly. What is the reason for having basedebs.tgz? We cannot have the
tarball INSTEAD of the deb files (or can we?) Who needs basedebs.tgz? We
could put DOS versions of tar and gzip on the CD plus a BATch file, so
people can make their own basedebs.tgz if they want. Puting the same
data in different forms is wastage of disc space.
