In fact I did, although in a somewhat roundabout, "please imagine
that I said something different if you think the idea is horrible"
way. Most people imagined I said something different :-)

FWIW the draft I wrote is at
<http://henning.makholm.net/debian/dfsg-bis>, but I still have a pile
of responses from the last time I pitched it that I have never had the
time to work into it.

Henning Makholm                        "I have seen men with a *fraction* of
                                 your trauma pray to their deity for death's
                         release. And when death doesn't arrive immediately,
                       they reject their deity and begin to beg to another."
