What's the goal of this project? Some Debian BSD plans have intended to
make the BSD kernel another option along with the Linux kernel. This 
looks to be closer to a BSD with dpkg and apt, which may be a good idea, 
but not within Debian. I like the fact that I don't have to worry about
non-GNU tars or non-GNU libc's in Debian, and would find it a bad thing
for Debian to have to change a thousand packages to try and support a
BSD with apt.
