No, I'm offended by the idea that a common root used in many geek words
can so easily be declared 'unclean' and eradicated. This is political
correctness at its worst, and I find it horrifically offensive. And
that's a _current_ issue, not one from the previous millennium.

I have no particular attachment to the '├╝berpackager' name, but I object
strongly to the change on _principle_. Please leave it as it was.
