And when someone wants to put a dpkg-enabled tool in the distro that
does target casual users?
What kind of tool are you thinking of? If we have tools that use dpkg
then there is a lack of proper integration. The solution is not to have
a non functional dpkg, but properly integrated packages.
It's a slippery slope. We avoid
being on that slope by not having a fully functional dpkg on the system at all.
It is better if the dpkg we give is upstream dpkg, such that user can
use it in any way they want.
