It is verbose isn't it? Yuk
Anyway, last time I visited that page I could edit it so I guess it's a 
wiki :) , perhaps we can remove the upgrade from Potato section by now, 
though that wouldn't help translators.
Perhaps one could pack it up in a script, this would save some lines but is 
pointless if no one uses it anyway.
Myself just meditate on how much better being ugly than none.

Yeah, it's stupid, scrap it.
Yet, regardless of what said on support, it means fart without thorough 
testing and fixing.
