	I am sorry. I had not meant my reply to preclude the
 maintainers from thinking. The basic principles behind my questions
 are valid:

  a) What does this package do?
  b) Why should I install it? Do I even need to install it, or would
     it be pulled in by dependency relationships?
  c) How is this package different from others of its kind? Are there
     others of its kind? What are the strengths? The missing features? 

	As always, common sense is a triat that a maintainer can
 rarely do without. 

"Don't come back until you have him", the Tick-Tock Man said quietly,
sincerely, extremely dangerously.  They used dogs.  They used probes.
They used cardio plate crossoffs. They used teepers.  They used
bribery.  They used stick tites.  They used intimidation.  They used
torment.  They used torture.  They used finks. They used cops.  They
used search and seizure.  They used fallaron.  They used betterment
incentives.  They used finger prints.  They used the bertillion
system.  They used cunning.  They used guile.  They used
treachery. They used Raoul-Mitgong but he wasn't much help.  They used
applied physics. They used techniques of criminology.  And what the
hell, they caught him. Harlan Ellison, "Repent, Harlequin, said the
Tick-Tock Man"
