	And what is the problem with the dkms-gspca stuff at rpmforge?

	Nor should it have to.  There exist vetted 3rd-party repos

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena.  Think of the
rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in
glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of
a dot.  Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one
corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some
other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to
kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.
