IMO that's a bit too advanced, too administrator/developer specific.
I would prefer having a fortunes-newbie-hints which is mixed by fortune,
eg. using 90% from newbie-hints and 10% from debian-hints. I would even
change that during the runtime, eg. shifting the weights by one percent
every day, from newbie-hints to debian-hints.
