        Computer related stuff is either hardware, software, or
 wetware.  The wetware that produces Debian ships only software.. This
 particular weware unit does not think Debian ever shipped any
 hardware, so every thing we do ship is shoftware.

        I would not like to see Debian ever shipping wetware either.
