	One extra 4 KB file that really helps at times? Do we really
 want to cater to unreasonable people like that? why on earth? If
 there are technical objections, please feel free to voice them.

	Debian has achieved technical renown by not slavishly
 sticking to traditional unix behaviour (we have non standard stuff
 like dpkg, see?). I strongly deplore this new tendency to bend over
 backwards trying to placate increasingly unreasonable people.
