I am also not interested in testing an ugly work-around (install unwanted A, replace it by B). My servers seem to have similar configurations like those of Miles Fidelman.

I definitely want a straight upgrade path with a minimum of problems, and a minimum of wasted time. That’s why I choosed Debian.

Exchanging an unwanted package is wasted time and unnecessary risk.

If Debian ignores the needs of the users, they will give up using Debian sooner or later.

On desktops I still gave up using Debian (and using Linux) since Gnome 3, and since I wasted uncountable hours in trying other WMs.

That has nothing to do with doing unpayed work or not. It’s about choosing technical alternatives.
