No; it's just that there is a newer version in /usr/local, and the
workspaces are incompatible.  It was causing my nightly update to
fail, because my crontab PATH had /usr/bin before /usr/local/bin --
and there's no reason to install an old version via apt when we have a
new version installed already.

I'm sure whatever version is in apt is fine, but the one in /usr/local
is better.  ;-)


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
