I was the bug submitter. I asked Anthony in private mail and he gave a few 
reasons. I'm not really convinced by them, but in the end, it's not my 
responsability. I just make sure I don't install star on my systems and I'm 
done with it. If everyone else (maintainer, ftp-masters, mirror 
operators, ...) is happy with it, why should I bother any longer?
