So, we will ship a sarge release which will show porn to our kids by default ?
I don't want *ANYTHING* to do with that, and if you go this way, i hereby
demand that my name is removed from any file containing it on this
pornographic sarge release.
Sorry, but i think this is a grave issue, which goes beyond a mere technical
bug or whatever. Maybe we should just drop KDE from the dekstop task or
something though :)
