I've been lurking on this issue, and I must voice my opinion AGAINST
the proposal as it stands now. Firstly, it seems to me at least that
it has been brought forth entirely by Ian Jackson, with little or no
support from the Technical Committee he claims he represents.
Secondly, logical suggestions from developers have gone unconsidered.
If it were to be approved, I'd simply ignore it.

The argument right now is:

"Ian Jackson, and some other members of debian-project, say that
