No wonder I like it (he writes from a Debian Sid box). :-)

Although 4.7 seems to have slipped as far as sarge, schedule wise.  Boy the 
comparison just gets better and better...

All we need now is aptitude (automated module installer) and we can start

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
