I suppose the woody packages aren't BAD, but after using Helix, going back
feels like a serious downgrade.  This is why I'm so interested in Debian
maintainers working to incorporate Helix into Debian.  I think both Debian
and Helix would benefit with more cooperation.  And I'll benefit by having
better Gnome while still being able to build packages on a "clean" Debian
system.  =)
