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
non-native ones.

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.
