Ok, but would you consider changing/adding to your distribution if you could
maintain your goals ? What I mean, do you want to make changes to for
instance packages shipped with your distribution if you would not have to
drop the 100% compatibility ? I think this is a rather essential issue here,
since if no-one wants to change anything to make their distribution
compatible with the others as well, there is no point in continuing this
