Well, I am one of several people I know, who are employed to develop
commercial Motif applications and who are able to do so using Linux
as our OS.

I chose to use the Debian Linux distribution so that I could spend more
of my time developing and less time maintaining my system.

If I have to start compiling packages that I use myself, then alot of
Debian's appeal is lost.

I have Motif on my system. As such, I have no need, nor do I want to
install lesstif.

Please spare a thought for people like myself. If maintainers are prepared
to produce dynamically linked Motif packages, then please don't stop them.
