Your idea of "constructive" is apparently flawed.  The comment that you
cut (and I just put back) illustrates what I was talking about, as does
your suggestion that I should contact Debian maintainers because I
disagreed with the idea of maintaining a package file list.

Your truculent insistence that I should knight you as the coreutils/bash
maintainer is another example.

You can make any suggestions you want.  Just avoid the snide asides.
