That is the official FFII/Greens-EFA suggestion. (I think eurolinux
was folded into FFII.) I found a link to the proposal from this page:

(This is a pretty interesting page.  The link is in section 2.4)

I can't find any big discussions, I'm hoping this is because national
groups are discussing it.  I've met with the FFII people as well
as people from national software-freedom groups in the EU.  Many
of these groups are quite impressive but there is no umbrella
group or unified mailinglist.  (The FSFeurope is tryind to solve
this problem.)

Good to know you got Nuala Ahern on our side.
