I hereby declare that there may be some jurisdictions which prohibit
files that contain the string "perens.com" anywhere in them.  If that
declaration is enough to make people start "erring on the side of
caution" then we are in trouble.

However, as I said, I have no objection to you writing a list of
packages for whatever purpose you choose.  Please do so, and stop
trying to tell Debian what we should or shouldn't distribute.
