Postfix is needed in the 'Enterprise'. Just because we have Exim, don't meen we
can't have multiple choises. Some entrprises would REFUSE to run anything than
Sendmail (or qmail in my case). If that isn't supplied, I wouldn't be able to
run Debian GNU/Linux. Choise is good, but I think we've overdone it...

About KDE. I don't like it so I wouldn't cry if it went out. But I guess the
discussion on what "an Enterprise" really entitles. I think that Debian GNU/Linux
should provide the _server_ end of the Enterprise, not the _whole_ Enterprise...
