But seriously though: You'd have to force me. Improve your spam filter
to use better balanced rules (give me points for using mutt). 

   * Vigra is an acronym (Vision with Generic Algorithms) that has
   deeper meaning than just playing with similar words.

   * Vigra is chosen py upstream, not by me.

   * Vigra is not Viagra.
   * There is no Debian package called vigra by now; no namespace
   * we have packages like "sex" in Debian.  (BTW: "sed" is at the same 
   distance to "sex" as "vigra" is to "viagra", if your metric is 
   added/missing/changed letters).

If this mail doesnt reach you, this discussion has ended ;-]
