Some of my coworkers prefer duff over the tools available in Debian,
too. I'm though no more sure why, but it's possible that speed was one
argument, because they ran it over several TB of data. Will check
what exactly was the reason back then.
Was thinking about packaging it myself already, so I may also sponsor
Kamal's package when it's ready.
