Of course, upon further thought, I question whether it'll actually
happen---there's a lot more going on behind the scenes than I think
occurs to people at first glance.  At least, that was the case for me.

So I expect .debs of non-free software will end up being treated as
samizdat, and we'll be in the situation that RedHat users can have
where .rpm's you pull off the net may or may not work with your
libraries because they're totally unintegrated with the main
distribution, and I don't think we will have anyone to create

Oh, well.
