There is a pretty good technical discussion going on about this subject
at the very moment. If you have useful information to add to that
discussion please share it. Stating that "if you do this, I'm gonna
leave" does not help. Technical information is more useful. Someone who
really understands how different alternatives work could add valuable
information and opinions to the discussion. You know, everyone wants to
make Debian better and there is this usual challenge of having different
tools with different advantages and disadvantages. How to combine as
much advantages as possible?
