When it suits me to compile things myself, I do.  Kernels tend to be 
useful things to self-compile.  Things like "ls" are generally a waste 
of time to recompile.  It seems silly to insist that people using an 
OpenSource thing like Debian *shouldn't* compile things themselves 
though.  It's just a rant, try not to get off your rocker if you 
disagree with me.  And, Sven, I do appreciate the work you do on 
perparing the kernel, but insisting that everyone should use your 
compiled version of the kernel just seems silly to me.
