Christ, no. If it's not meant to be run by any users, the fact that it's
actually an executable is pretty irrelevant - the growth of things like
bonobo objects means that the division between executables and libraries
has become fuzzy, so there's no need to split things beyond the
"platform specific binary that users run directly" and "platform
specific binary that users don't run directly" division.

Debian's not a BSD, regardless of the kernel that it's running on.
