	I know for certain that you shall stop getting angband unless
 you package it yourself.

	See, first you ask for an impact. When one example is
 provided, you try and equivocate it away by stating something inane
 like no one knows the future. Yes, we are not oracles; but reasoning
 humans can make projections, and there is a distinct possibility that
 the ability to gain access to such software shall be severely degraded.

 The system will be down for 10 days for preventive maintenance.
