Don't worry, we're in full agreement; my examples were only intended to
explain why I felt Joe's argument was an overgeneralization.  Maybe I
interpreted it more generally than it was, possibly due a bit of past
conditioning from Marco.  (I stopped reading his messages long ago, so
if that's the case, hopefully it'll wear off eventually. :)

In any case, I don't have a strong opinion on the conclusion, though it'd
be nice if Debian had enough of a stance on this sort of thing--beyond
"leave it up to the maintainer"--to avoid one SNES emulator ending up in
main and the other in contrib.
