Oh yeah - I did know that. I've been Debianized for too long, I guess.
:) It's not a concern, given that it's all being replaced by the Xnest
 Not that I've been converted to a package - that would be a LARGE
download - but as a parallel to the following slang expression from down
south. The plantain is so much a staple of the Dominican diet that it's
central to the national identity; when someone moves to the DR and even
becomes a citizen, they're not considered locals quite as yet. However,
after a few years of absorbing the local culture and getting adapted to
the island ways, they become so - and are considered "platanizado"
("plantainized") from then on.
