Wasn't it you (could have been James Troup, too, not sure now)
who said some month ago, that it would be interesting to see
debian be used on embedded systems more? well, embedded systems
are all about saving space and resources. minimal *and prtabel*
programs are needed for that, for example. 

As you might know, there are more then 10 times more embedded
systems then desktop system, let alone servers or even debian
boxes. so that is the market with big numbers and importance for
the future. In case you wanted to ask for relevance...

I don not see what you gain by exclamations like this. I do not
mean any harm, so stop being personaly insulting, please.
I do not know the word 'protracted'. please use simple language or use
