yes, but putting stuff there is always an active task of the sysadmin. And a 
sysadmin has very fine granular control when doing so (e.g. she could choose 
to use a different path, that's only visible for one particular service). This 
is imho missing from the approach as seen in the upload. 

Oh, one thing that hasn't been discussed by motu-release is actually the 
effect on the passenger package, as posted by the server team meeting minutes. 
In this regard, I'd like to bring your attention however to [1], without 
further comments.

Finally, whatever MC should choose as resolution, I'd like to add to please do 
it in a short time frame, so that intrepid won't possibly get affected by 
last-minute changes.
