Just to state that i fully approve of this.  I see no problem with
commercialization of Debian as long as it stays free.  That's why we
(among other things) we provide our distribution e.g. for entities like
Corel, don't we?  A distribution which is not commercially viable in the
Real World[TM] is not very likely to be widely used. I personally have no
interest working in a project which creates only products for an irreal
ideal world made only for clinically clean free software zealots.
