If the trend to put "unsuitable material" in -off packages arises
enough, it won't take kids ages to master
"grep-available -Pe -s Package '.*-off$'", methinks. IMO, this
half-assed proposal will have exactly the opposite effect of what its
proponents are purportedly trying to achieve: it will facilitate the
Quest For Unsuitable Material.

If you add the other, hidden half of the proposal, which was brought up
in the hot-babe thread, i.e. creating special versions of the Debian CDs
with controversial contents removed and lock you kids forever in the
computer room without Internet access, then you have won; you might as
well chop their head off, which has always been a very efficient way to
prevent people from seeing porn. Otherwise, they will find a place with
Internet access and download the -off packages (they might even report
bugs so that -off becomes an official task for easier access).
