I don't know what "can't infuse your brain" means, but I'm happy to hear 
you're happy with ebuilds.

Basically - I agree with your outlook - we should have better tools.  By 
all means competition is part of the process to get there!

I'll see when we can find a good time/place for the deb tutorial.  I'd 
really like to do that in the next few weeks.  I'll see about reviving the 
different-venue discussion in a separate thread.

I'm interested in the idea in general.  I wonder how you could express 
dependency facts that way.  (That's a serious question.)  I'd love to have 
a separate discussion about this.

Even more amazing was the realization that God has Internet access.  I
wonder if He has a full newsfeed?
