I really really like the "there is more than one way to do it"
approach and consider it a vital part of Debian. There are tiny
packages, and there are huge ones. Complex and simple ones, native and
Being forced to use the complex SCM that might be needed to maintain a
huge, compex and non-native package for doing a trivial, simple and
native package sounds awfully uncomforable.
I'd like things to stay the way they are.
