Well I can agree to this at least!

However, in general, I'm suffering a bit of mail fatigue
on this issue.  I'm still convinced that the proposal
is an excellent one, and to introduce it would do no harm
and a lot of good.

But also it is no good half-introducing it.  If we don't make it
the default (no questions at install time), I say don't bother
at all; at least not the next release of debian.
