So you have even found the answer to the question - or rather you
pronounced it differently, because whe need to ask: "What exactly is
perfection?" In my eyes perfection means: "So good that people will
prefer it over others."

I do not think that we succeed in improving Debian if the userbase is
decreasing. IMHO this would mean we are trapped in an ivory tower. So
both parameters "quality of distribution" and "number of users" are
somehow connected and you can not ignore this relation.
