It will take time to reinstall it exactly as it is packaged now, and
we'll have to manually check for updates (while currently we rely on
Debian for that - especially security updates).

More generally installing a piece of software manually is a sysadmin
overhead and a security hazard that we use only when there is a strong
reason - and time.

Unlike with the sftp:// issue, I don't think it is important to
upgrade to the latest version of bzr at the moment.  I may be wrong.

I understand that desktop users are not necessarily familiar with this
maintenance workflow, that is less responsive, but more reliable.
It's applied to all Savannah.
