Images without Steve is _just_ about do-able. [RattusRattus is understudy and
has been doing much of hte work as Steve's deputy for the last couple of
Buster point releases - but yes, Steve is incredibly useful as the person
who knows / has seen problems before / can hack up fixes mid-point-release].

meteor were to hit OMGWTFBBQ centrally we might just about be able to cope.
