I think the odds of getting to something that everyone would agree on
are nil, so I'm not excited about getting into that particular
bikeshed-painting discussion.  Look at the amount of trouble we're
having converging on a default for the regression tests, which are
a far narrower use-case than "everybody".

I think Debian's choice was probably made by fiat, not by consensus.
Packagers seem to be able to get away with quite a lot in that regard.
