As I recall, what Bruce said was more along of the lines of he intended
the DFSG to cover everything on a (or "the", at the time?) Debian CD.
I'm not really sure of the history involved and whether at the time
there was a direct correlation between the Debian CD and the Debian
"main" archive.

For every sprinkle I find, I shall kill you!
