I don't follow your reasoning here, possibly because you are
summarizing a past discussion that happened long before I started
reading this list. I don't propose that Debian use or attempt to use
the OS exception--I think it would go against much of what we stand
for. However, I'm curious and would like to understand why we
couldn't use this if we were so enclined.
