Because it will affect me in some way. The point is whether we want to
satisfy the (estimated) small number of users who *might* need this
functionality by making a large number of changes to packages (Russell has
provided an extensive list of those effected). This is very likely to
introduce bugs and make us non-standard WRT the other Linux distributions.
