Well, I tried that.  And although I could install vim-runtime
1:7.1-022+1, which is the one required by the vim hurd, apt is still
kind of broken.  I can't perform apt-get dist-upgrade because it'll
always try to update vim-runtime and to then remove vim...  Hopefully
I can get aptitude soon, so that I can manage these things with "=" to
hold packages, :)...  BTW, I understood there was an update to the
repos pending, so that aptitude could get updated, is that so, or I
misunderstood it?
