And since when were people hailed into court for misconfiguring
their software, particularly when it reminds you all the time of:

    "The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software;
     the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the
     individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.

    "Debian GNU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent
     permitted by applicable law."
