Scratched an itch, and caused tons of confusion in a community.

You'd be wrong. Misinformation about the UI doesn't help anybody. It's
not even clear to people that they are using a patched GIMP.

Maybe I should take Fedora, rename it "Debora", but only on the CD
packaging, and rename the rpm command to "dpkg", and make 1/2 the
command line options to it match dpkg, and maybe changing some help text
here and there, and release it as something that eases the transition
from Debian to Fedora. And lag a couple months behind Fedora on all bug
fixes, so Debora users don't upgrade, even for security critical bugs.

Also, push all the support concerns onto Fedora proper, they'd be thrilled
to handle it right? And I'm sure Fedora users would love hearing about
"dpkg" on their lists and not be confused at all.

I'm scratching an itch. It's all good, right?
