I completely agree on this, what is the reason/usefulness to have a cpu
monitoring program which "main feature" is to show a naked woman (or
man)? Since there are other programs which do the same? does it improves
the distribution, user-friendlyness, encourages people to install
Debian instead other distros? or ... helps to have Sarge released?

I do also agree on this and with previous post about a sort of
guidelines to determine what are the means to pick a piece of software
and put it into the archives (ain't talking about ban-this-and-that DG)
