	Immorral opinnions can be honestly held. And the prcess of
 submission is orthogonal to morality.

 	More doublespek, methinks, to wiggle out of a promise
 made. The social contract is a promise made by Debian; and
 substantially changing that, which this GR does, not only goes
 against that word, it changes what Debian is. I would hesitate to fix
 what obviously ain't broke.

 I call them as I see them.  If I can't see them, I make them up. Biff
