my view of the world needs juggling: my apologiesm if i've slandered you.

what the users _really_ need is "what we had before" (for each user).
since i don't know what they had after their machine has been regrooved
with the new os, this doesn't help much.

however, with the knowledge of the congruence of package systems, i
ought to be able to improve responsiveness to error reports.

thanks for the response.
