	I have a copy of the script that looks at the du -S output and
 at /proc/mounts and figures out the space required for each
 partition. (We can look up the archives for details). I think it was
 at the point of being proposed for policy, but we lost the policy

	Another good reason to wait was to release Hamm; now that we
 are close to that, mayeb we should look at the archives and create a
 summary? If we have a concrete proposal, we can get the apt
 developers to buy into it.

 we really need a policy editor
