I'm glad it came across clearly!

Yes, that sounds right to me. TBH, I've not really thought super hard
about juju as it is still in this strange "some deps from source
package / some deps from archive" middle ground, but I assume that
some sanity will emerge here (or at least stability). There's no real
reason to make separate packages for the different github.com/juju
things until there is an actual reason.

PS: can we stop including jujud in the juju-2.0 binary packages yet?
