The problem is not the software that are in Debian and have bugs already
reported, the  problem is the software  that are not in  Debian and that
won't work with Debian but with any other distribution.

— XXX does not work with my Debian, it just fails with some network error
— I just tested, it works fine on my Arch
— Oh, Debian just sucks, let's try something else

*That* is a real situation case.  Nobody will set bindv6only to 1 on her
own.
