I thought it was blindingly obvious that all valid debian decisions
would be respected by SPI, but
http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2007/02/msg00117.html suggests
some board members may disagree.  I think it could be helpful to the
debian project as a whole, depending who is elected as DPL in future,
and it's shameful that Anthony Towns is personalising yet again.

makes no similar specification AFAICT, but it could be useful.
