Try to read once more, what I wrote -- I did not say a word _against_ X.org
(I suppose, that in the next version of Debian -- I mean post-sarge -- X
will be based on X.org). What I meant is that except of bitrot (which is
not visible yet), it really doesn't matter that much, whether Debian is
based on X.org or XFree86.

What I like about Debian is that it is really The Universal Operating
System, where even packages which clueless ignorants know nothing about are
fully supported and part of the game.

it leads to http://packages.debian.org/testing/x11/gtamsanalyzer.app. I have
no idea, why it is not called GTams (as on tamsys.sf.net/gtams, which is a
home of upstream).

Go ahead and enjoy Libranet! But why do you bitch here is a question which
was still not answered.

And your point is? Debian doesn't require donations and what I do for open
source software is none of your business (however, try to search my name on
Google or Google Groups, I did for free software more than bitching about
bad Debian).
