Actually, as you know, I was in favor of having my own copy of these 
tiny jQuery libraries that I needed to make coverage.py work. You were 
in favor of applying the Debian philosophy of making everything a 
separate library, no matter how finely sliced.  The theory was that I 
could automatically get fixes.  Now I've automatically gotten bugs.  I 
had a package that worked.  Debian has a package that does not.  Now I 
have to chase down the author?  :(

Who made the decision to upgrade the package in Debian?
