Thanks for your reply to Matt's email. Unfortunately, TuxOnIce has got a
reputation for being intrusive that it doesn't deserve. If you look at
the PPA, you'll see that.

That said, I understand the reluctance to include it if it's not
upstream, and I hope to finally submit it for inclusion in mainline soon
- I'm only doing the tidy ups and so on now in preparation for that.
