So, who's going to do this work?  While they're reading every single
message sent to the list over the last decade and a half, wouldn't it
make more sense to just honor the GR than to make up more work that
nobody is ever going to do?  This was precisely the problem with the GR
in the first place - it was a "somebody should really do that"
statement, and Debian has never worked that way.

Just sayin'
