	As a member of the said community, I think that, however the
	presence of either of the packages in Debian paints it, –
	I could live with that.

	Regarding the possible enhancement of XBill to allow for using a
	user-specified set of sprites (whether packaged or not), –
	it certainly feels like a proper solution to me.  I guess the
	package could then be enhanced to include several such “themes,”
	including the “classic” one, the newly proposed one, and perhaps
	a few more, depending on the availability and relevance.

	While not a full-scale ad-hominem attack, I’d say that the two
	differences I know of between the vrms operation and the
	official FSF position amount to a misrepresentation at best.
	Are we going to drop that package, too?
