I think we're talking about making Debian run without Linux emulation
under the FreeBSD kernel. I guess the purpose is to make the
equivalent of a "FreeBSD distribution," even though there is no such
beast (there's FreeBSD, but it's not a "FreeBSD distribution" in the
sense that Red Hat and Debian are "Linux distributions", since it's
all one big happy package).

My suspicion is that we're creating FreeBSD-native packages that will
follow Debian policy, running under the FreeBSD kernel.
