On 17-Jul-98 Perry E. Metzger spoke unto us all:
#  I actually agree with Todd, though. xneko could be used by anyone. The

The problem with that logic is, that eventualy our pkgsrc tree will double in
size.   And triple, etc etc etc..  Who then decides what is and isn't useful to
our users?  Sure you don't know anyone doing this..  I happen to have a few
friends still running BBS's though.. they might find it useful..  

I'm just saying..  its gonna get alot bigger than this.. and if we start
deciding what is and is not a "useful tool", we are eventually going to piss
someone off.  Everyone's idea of useful is bound to be different.. I think our
goal is to provide "a way to install third party applications"  not "a way to
install useful third party applications"

heck.. how useful is crashme.  It doesn't even crash my system!  ;)  <duck>
