Re: package management

Well, the problem with upgrading one or two packages is that you run into 
dependencies problems: if you upgrade something simple, but it requires a new 
version of a library that isn't quite compatible with an older library that 
some other non-upgraded software depends on, you've got problems. 

Hope this helps...
