Hmmm. I think that we are so far from such a thing being possible, that
very few people would draw such a conclusion. And even if it was
eventually implemented, I doubt it would end up being specific to Debian
at all, since there are (strangely enough, I know) other systems out
there that have a lot of similar software that Debian does, and such a
project would likely want to try to support those too...at least until
Debian finishes taking over the world :)
But if others also have an objection to name, I can change it, I guess.

I think it should be obvious that those would be in other packages.

That change to the short description is a good idea; fixed in CVS.
