Right. What's there to discuss? You made a mistake, it happens.

The only mistake I made was to think I had dropped it :) As I already
wrote, I had wanted to do it but somehow never really did it, as an
installation of openSUSE 11.0 RC2 showed me.

Now the only thing left is to think of how I may possibly pass on the
knowledge so that people stop using checkinstall.

Before you do that, make sure there's a viable replacement available. Otherwise you'll be creating a problem for many users.
