This is the solution to Debian's problem with gaining a market share
as big as other dists.  We need more relatives of debian developers,
and since the only real way to create more relatives of developers is
to have children, we need more sex!  It's a long term investment which
won't pay off for about 8 years or so.

I guess adoption will work to, but like hacking, it's not just hacking
the result at the end of the all the work, it's the work itself that
is satisfying!
