There were extensive discussion about this in November on debian-devel,
in the thread called "Debian based GNU/Solaris: pilot program", in which
Erast Benson also participated a lot. One article that seems pretty good
to me: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/11/msg00123.html

I suggest we not repeat this discussion. We're not breaking new ground
here, we're beating a dry, dark patch of ground where a long time ago
(or so the elders tell us) some people used to have a hobby of hitting a
horse carcass.

If you do insist on re-iterating this discussion *again*, please do it
elsewhere than debian-devel.
