I'm quite sympathetic to that viewpoint--I think that OVS currently has
far too much distro-specific stuff in it.  In the long run I'd like to
drop the Debian and Red Hat and XenServer packaging from the tree.  As a
Debian developer myself, I know that it's not actually helpful for
upstream to provide packaging.

Seems OK for now.
