Well, *I* consider kmail and jpilot important programs to include, so would
somebody please promote them to Standard, or better yet Essential. This
argumentation leads nowhere.
I hear that more and more users in areas like Brazil, China, Pakistan, ...
are using Linux and especially Debian - and in those areas, 28.8k Modems
are still new and shiny, sometimes for an entire school. So making a
standard installation of Debian smaller is IMHO a worthwile goal.
