One reason why I prefer Debian over Ubuntu is that it does *not*
have that differerence between a supported ('main') and unsupported
('universe') repository. I like Debian *because* there are so many
choices in the main repository and I don't have to worry if a
package is actually well-supported when I install it, and I would be
glad if it would just stay like that. If a maintainer really takes
care of a package, I see no reason why it shouldn't be added even
when there are already several others with a similar feature set.
