	And I would be scuritnized and made to answer 20 questions to
 even get to England. Heck, returnng from India once, weather had
 caused us to misss the connectng flight to the US, and we were stuck
 in Schipol for 22 hours, I saw the authorities *refuse* let a family
 from Bangladesh go to the airline provided Hotel (though they had a
 US Green Card and passage on the flight the next day). This though
 they were travelling with a baby and small children, and the airport
 is not geared for long stays (no place to sleep, etc).

	Since US develoeprs were not invited to these sekrit european
 meetings, perhaps the INS issue  can be dimissed equally high

	Do we even have Cuban developers? And do we have cuban dpkg
 developers? (hint: we have a Texan who develops dpkg)
