For example, do "hide" my entire OS might entail a steganographic technique ... perhaps my copy of the World of Warcraft client (a few Gig of code, music and graphics) could have an innocuous seeming add-on (Lua code) which actually boots (a la the old LOADLIN.EXE, CoLinux, or Ubuntu Wubi) into our hypothetical system. All that subterfuge is totally unnecessary to normal Debian users and would detract from the overall system useability.
Obviously each of the individual components of such a "ParanoidLinux" could be a candidate for normal, upstream, Debian packaging.
