Because we should not redefine common used language in order not to
offend present DDs, but we should make it clear that DD does not have
to be == packager/coder.

Because the people aproaching Debian should not go away because they
realise we are redefinig words. Heck, we _shouldn't_ redefine them. Is
a really broad acception that developer==code developer==programmer.
