Only if the UNKNOWN files only exist in ubuntu and debian.

Patching code isn't hard. rewriting chunks of a complex code base are.

Unless you have a particular reason to think Debian/ubuntu have their

dont stay static) could you expand on it?

For what its worth, I just did some spot checks on files listed as
UNKNOWN and some have been updated in the svn repo. Hopefully this
continues :)
