I'd like to add one more thing to this - maybe I was indeed
nitpicking. But I did that, just to show, that his complaint
in reality wasn't valid or was based on a misconception about
how etc-update works. And I was doing that, to clarify what he
wrote, as he wrote wrong things which were rather "FUD like",
ie. could be understood in a very wrong way.
