I think the bug logs are talking about other BSDs, not Debian
GNU/kFreeBSD.  Our decision will bind Debian GNU/kFreeBSD although the
exact mechanism will vary.  I agree that both should do the same.

That's nice but I think we should continue anyway.  (I'm not up to
date with debian-devel.)  As a matter of procedure, I think it's fine
for us to carry on with making a decision provided it isn't actually
moot yet.
