That's a problem with the current setup, indeed.  I think we should be
moving towards a Bzr "packages" branch which we could checkout alongside
Emacs and edit easily to fix bugs.

There's a fair bit of work left to do to get to that point, tho.
Part of the problem here is how to decouple edits from uploads, how to
sync local changes with the upstream maintainer, etc...
