I understand that there is a fine difference b/w something that is
useless and might be useful but lets be resonable here. Is it fine to
package something like an application that will play a sound file
at the top of the hour?? I would find that very much useless as there
are many ways of doing that without adding more packages to the archive.
Someone before said that for a package to be included in Debian, x
number of DD should vote for it so it's accepted. With this ITP, I think
that the voting become much more popular to me.
Anyway, this should _not_ be a seperate package - maybe they should add it
as another built-in app into Emacs :)
