	My solution involves extending dpkg, so that every darned
 package does not have to deal with this. Now you say we have ``A true
 Debian system'' that does not have Debian's packaging system? Really?
 Where is it? As far as I know, the HURD had dpkg. Am I wrong? 

	And since when has a freebsd-sans-dpkg been a true Debian
 system? (BTW, if there is no dpkg, lots of Debian policy is null and
 void, right? )

 All most people want is a little more than they'll ever get.
