There are things on earth harder to believe - say Matz before 9 on a
thursday :)

I'm not speaking against comments but against having a policy to reject
packages without comments. Because rm calls are no special than sed calls
or grep -v calls or _anything_ hacky. But as others said: what is hacky lies
in the eye of the reader/writer, so I don't want to see that in a policy.

"Packagers should have a clue what they're doing or document they have none"
is as good as it gets for me :)
