Read the list archives (mostly of sounder and -dev I think) where it is
discussed how that never really worked at a level required by Ubuntu's
target users. Matt Zimmerman has a great deal to say about this.

Debian admins are a very different breed, and there never was a Debian
Standard System, everyone pulled in what he/she needed. It is different
in Ubuntu
