I don't think this kind of attitude helps anyone. Harassing people for
having ideas different than yours will only make people to stop
sharing them. We should seriously reconsider what kind of "Debian" we
want. Seriously.

On the proposal's side, I DO think it's a good idea, and it would be
good to discuss it after the release, as someone proposed.
