Well this is good. So we'd agree that, as a practical matter, we
should not file bugs about snippets, not worry about them, not talk
about them, and just leave snippet-related issues to the discretion of
individual package maintainers. This is how I'd describe what we've
done in the past, so if you think that is a continuation of current
and historic Debian practice then we agree about that as well.
If that is a fair summary, I think we can declare this thread closed!
Truly a happy day in debian-legal.
