I do not believe I ever generalized this broadly.  Please do not put
words in my mouth.

I do think that some -- but by no means all -- people who want to apply
the DFSG only to a certain subset of the works in Debian main are
essentially "w4r3z d00dz" as I understand the term.  That is, people,
who derive pleasure from the simple accumulation of digital works,
and/or see it as an end in itself.

This is a variant of the "he who dies with the most toys wins"
