Do you? In the past Debian has not shied away from making the choice that
it considers technically (or philosophically) the most sound, not the one
that implies the least amount of work. The choice will probably be made on
just a few high-level factors, such as the chosen approach (dependency vs
event based), best user experience and/or licensing.
Facts are being gathered about the percentage of code comments, but I it
seems unlikely that Debian would reject a solution that it thinks is
architecturally superior because of it having fewer code comments.
