I think that this over-generalization is wrong.

I strongly believe that some new packages (e.g. mine), which add a unique and
requested function to Debian (here enabling chipcard based homebanking) are a
much better enhancement to Debian than adopting some old ones (e.g. xtrojka -
cf. Joey Hess' post to the "sister thread" on Debian).
