Why just debian, why not say RedHat or Slackware???  Seeing as all
distributions are basically the same (i.e. the same software is
provided) why limit ourselves to just Debian (which as I understand it
is, because of the way Debian is designed, just slightly out of date
[older software packages])?????

Until something goes wrong and you have nobody to ask questions. 
Remember that SEUL is looking at the neophyte who in all probability has
never done a compile in their whole life.  A somewhat scarry task until
you get your feet wet, so to speak.

Maybe it was one of the reasons for modules, but for our purposes it is
a major concideration.
