One would suspect Debian/GNU FreeBSD would include GNU utilities instead
of or in addition to the BSD variants (but I'm sure you knew this and
were instead trying to make some sort of backhanded swipe at the FSF).

I know at least one person on this list who'd like to see Debian FreeBSD
(with no GNU utilities at all), but I forget who it was.  There was some
talk about this nearly a year ago.
