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?
