Something decent imported -> Redefinition of 'decent' -> pkgsrc is a
kludge to save us time writing decent stuff ourselves -> if and when we
get the time to write decent replacements for all (crap or not) stuff in
pkgsrc, it would mean the end of a package system as we know it.

Personally, I do not exactly adore pkgsrc. But then again, I do not
generally adore kludges. However, as kludges go, pksgrc is positively
unique in it's kind.

Because, like most 'prominent' people here, he has 1) no sense of humor
and 2) solves their problems with their own emotions by repressing them
instead of maturing their self-control. Mind you, it beats given them free
reigns as most other developers do...
