11 This is starting to look a lot like /etc/alternatives a la debian, what
12 was the reason for not using that solution from the start (for all
13 packages that might have alternatives)?
14 Wouldn't that be a more generic solution? (Have to admit I haven't
15 looked at debian /etc/alternatives more than over a co-workers shoulder,
