Why?  It doesn't really matter.  The problem clearly needs a resolution
and either we'll determine it wasn't resolved in which case we need to
resolve it now or we'll determine it was, in which case the real question
is who's going to implement the solution this time?

Since the problem needs resolving and a patch is being tested to fix it,
all that remains is a few moments to test it (which I haven't had as I
have been very busy the past day or so), get it applied, and make similar
changes to apt and katie, I think it's high time we fix the problem for
good rather than rehash again and again what we discussed the last several
times this came up.  I'm using ~ since nobody can think of a good reason
not to use it in the package version.
