I asked for help here on the wording of the DLA, but got none. So I had
to make do with the best I could come up with. I felt I had listed the
reasons for the upload.

There didn't appear to be any need. There is never going to be any
conflict with any other distribution, which is the usual reason for
these prefixes.

(besides, wouldn't a good time to mention this have been before I
uploaded, when I was asking for people to test it?)
