Debian is about building an operating system, not about packing a giant pile of crap that a few people in the world will ever use. Having some choice between 2 incomplete tools is worse than not having any choice. Either these tools are complementary and they should be packaged together, or they are functionally similar and should be merged. > Why don't you buy a cow, if you want a bottle of milk?

A pair of scripts is not "a lot of useless tools", sorry. The real issue here is archive bloat. > Also it makes it much harder for users to *find* the > tools they need. Are you serious? Tools are much easier to find when in a single package that achieves the desired functionality. -- .''`. : :' : We are debian.org.
