This should probably then move to Debian-Project?

The computing world have become such complex, that we are all mere users
somewhere. So yes, we should think more about our users.

* I know a few who love lenny with backports, so yet, we should somehow
integrate that with the blends concept. Could there be a flag in
debian/control in some way for anything with a compatible debhelper
version to be auto-backported?

* Metaphorical speaking: we should give Debian a phone number. And I
mean full-time or at least half-time employees. With so many people
unemployed these days, I even feel we have the duty to think about
creating jobs.
