I'd expect/prefer that Ubuntu packages extensions so that they are
tested and fixed where needed. That many functionality has been pushed
out of GNOME and into extensions doesn't mean I want another
package/extension manager separate from my normal package manager.

Once Ubuntu starts shipping with GNOME as default, this should be one of
the major concerns or many users will start leaving. There is only so
much of breakage in the first access level to a system a normal user can
take. Stating, yeah it is up to the extension developer to keep up with
us, is too much to ask from them IMHO.
