Yeah that's a step too far for me.

Preserving the fortune program as it is for historical context is fine
for me. Adding more quotes from this jerk isn't productive. That would
send the wrong message. People can find these quotes elsewhere.

In that sense I guess my position is preserving fortune as a
historical relic, nothing more. It's a snapshot in time of what the
developers of this stuff were thinking.

I suggested that /usr/games just be moved to pkgsrc on irc. This makes a
good argument for that move, to me, because there's no reason to be
carrying around all that code if it's just for 'historic' purposes.
