Right, but if we want to improve our "product", we need people testing it,
so we must try to go towards users, more than now. And this is more
important when we have a very big distribution, like debian. A lot of bugs
comes out only after freeze, because many people (developers included),
passes from stable to frozen.

Capillary diffusion of only commercial distribution is not a good thing, if
we don't actually make an elite product. We need users, I repeat.

It may or may not be worthwhile, but it still has to be done.
