No he doesn't. He wants to create a new arbitrary patch set, in a
context where arbitrary patch sets have always been given distinct
names, and to call it by the "vanilla" name. It's irresponsible.

He doesn't even have the slim excuse of being implicitly the Debian
variant, because there would be two. All this can create is confusion.
