No; I mean that who don't want to use the configuration tool (and thus
want to use Debian as a "traditional" UNIX), must be free to not use
it.

Personally I don't care of this, but I know people who cares...

I've read the draft, and I'm quite impressed with it; if I were known
about it I wouldn't never posted my proposal.

For me the important thing is to integrate a configuration tool in
Debian soon (and thus get rid of the interactive scripts) not that
this tool must be what I've proposed.
