The reason for this is that whenever other participants (me, Simon,
Andrew, Graham, ...) raise the real issue

 - i.e. that what we really want is an autobuilder -

you, and Quim, and the other high bandwidth participants in this
thread, studiously ignore this point!

Want more stuff in extras => set up an autobuilder.  It's as
simple as that.  Once most people are using a single repo, package
dependency problems will disappear.  Within-package quality can be
dealt with by the usual free software mechanisms, and others (such as
rating and feedback) that have been discussed.
