FixMe: Let's bring some structure into what needs to be done in order to run Debian on the eeepc  * Make ACPI work natively in Debian
  * Short term: using eeepc-acpi-source package
   * File patches against appropriate packages (e.g. acpi-support) to make all laptop buttons, etc. work
   * Rebuild custom installer to include eeepc-acpi module and patched acpi-support
  * Long term: Help Asus merge ACPI upstream
   * asus-acpi (and therefore eeepc-acpi which is a fork) are deprecated; work with the asus-laptop maintainer to merge patches for the Eee
 * Improve installer for Eee
  * Short term: using custom d-i installer
  * Long term: ensure kernel & related packages support Eee natively so that standard d-i installer supports Eee without modification
