I thought it would be an honour to have your software distributed to
many users by Debian, for free.

Do you really think everyone going www.debian.org wants to download 8000
icons every time? Dial-up users will kill us - broadband users won't
like it. And do you think anyone will spot your wpoison logo amongst the
other thousands?

Thats what it would be like if we were "GLAD to at least give each of
these groups the honour of dedicated a little patch..."

Heck we dedicate a little bit of the archive to every group that is
willing to let us do so....
