I'd be interested in seeing more history, I just didn't think that
slocount mattered that much beyond YA statistic to put in the release
paragraph ("X" was released with N packages contained over K lines of
code corresponding to a (development cost model) present day cost of M
dollars [M/Y Yen, M/P Pounds, M/E Eu])

Perhaps some linkage to free sofware information would be good,
although personally, I suggest that we concentrate on debian specific
history, as opposed to the history of the entire FS movement. [At
least for this document. Although I'd definetly be interested in
seeing a more consise history of the FS movement...]
