Oh, I am not interested in fighting either :-)

Excellent to prepend such "like a..." to not risk watering out the DDD 
concept if it turns out that what FreedomBox becomes is not exactly 
perfectly how I dream about for the Debian Pure Blend concept.

I expect so too.  There is a good chance FreedomBox is a perfect match 
for a Debian Pure Blend: My main reason fighting for "purity" is that I 
find it crucial for long-term survival of a "blend" - which should be of 
high priority for FreedomBox.  And I suspect you agree with me on how it 
makes sense to make use of Debian for FreedomBox, and others here on the 
list does too as we align our understanding on it all.  Time will tell.
