What concrete strategies would you suggest to attract attention from
Donald?  I'll bet you that quite likely "we will remove this from
Debian" is about the most effective strategy we have.  It may not work,
but I suspect if it doesn't, then there is nothing we could do that
would work.

If *nothing* would work, is it your position that we should ignore the
DFSG problem here forever?
