To (re)+iterate:

* quality vs. quantity - both have some importance
* ease of installation (-> quality). It's clear that I _can_ get whatever
  I want from _somewhere_ but that lessens the _quality_ of the experience
  _I_ as a user have. To be able to apt-get is one of Debian's qualities
  that is highly respected - there a reason for that.
