Seconded, of course. And look at the list of architectures planned for
Etch; looks like Debian's merging with Ubuntu soon.

One the one hand, we have the Ubuntu cabal at key positions in the
Project; on the other hand, we have Project Scud, which members are
currently employed by companies having interests in Debian.

I don't like that smell... at all.
