Let's see.  Since you're "THE Adamantix guy", then maybe if you made a
debian kernel patch package you could just install it to make your default

You could broaden your testing base just by doing the same work you're doing
now (by integrating PaX into the Linux kernel), by only doing it in a
different place.

But then again, this isn't new.  How often does knoppix, Lindows (or any of
the other debian based dists) submit code back to debian or help with
packaging, or submit bug reports or...?
