 Sheesh, sorry for have you hit on your wrong foot. It wasn't a "I deny
to do so", so no need to get pouting at me. It was mere pointing out
that this approach is having its troubles and that I would like to get a
rethinking about this approach.

 I am sorry if you felt like having your head bitten off, and I were
further away from that than you might think, really wonder how you get
that impression.

 But I won't turn this into a "you did wrong" "no, you" thread because
it's not helpful at all, neither to you nor me nor Ubuntu nor Debian
nor the relationship between us, and turning to personal accusings just
don't get it any further.

 So long, and thanks for jumping.
