YEAH!!! Wichert, you are my hero! It's so important that we make a decision
on it, and I hope it will be (1) or (2), but not (3).

Richard Stallman will be happy, too, and I think it is a good idea to make
this step towards him. But apart from that, I also think it is important for
Debian to strenghten its identity.

Another good step from our fearless leader to put this up to a vote!
