Asking folks not to use debhelper is silly.  What does it prove?
Software tools are written to be used; encapsulation of lower-level tasks
is the name of the game.  Otherwise, why are we even bothering to package

<sigh> Maybe we should ask folks to compile their kernels without using
the supplied make files.  That would prove that they *really* know what
they're doing.
