My argument - and I think Joseph is saying the same thing - is that we
should support what is done *now*. Never mind what Debian or anyone
else might do in the future. Never mind whether or not a configuration
is exactly the same as the one ACT has historically supported.
I make this argument because I do not expect the status quo to change
before the end of 2002, and more likely, not before the middle of
2003. It is ridiculous to speak of a transition period measured in
years as "short."

I was hoping to be able to present results using my patches, but as
there are still no einfo.h and sinfo.h available, I haven't been able
to complete testing.
