	Debian is not a monolithic entity with policy being dictated
 by the CEO and company lawyers. Debian is what the people who make
 Debian want it to be. Some people want it to be highly popular. I am
 not one of them, but I say if they want to make it so, and are
 willing to do the work, more power to them.

	As is your right. I, personally, work for Debian so that I can
 have a high quality Linux distribution. Having it useful to other
 people, espescially people I like, is a neat secondary thing. 
	Am I beholden to the unwashed masses out there? No way.
