I have pending branches which change the private code to use the system
python-oauth, and to change ubuntuone-client to use python-oauth as
well. We need to have python-oauth backported to Hardy though, as the
server runs on Hardy LTS. Hopefully we can do this today, but I don't
know who to poke to escalate the package going into backports.

With the client and server fixed, we can fix ubuntuone-storage-protocol
to use the system python-oauth as well, instead.

I'll be making a new release tarball, with these fixes, and uploading
the packaging for Karmic today or early tomorrow.

Given the timing, and amount of work I have to do on the rest of the
Ubuntu One client, I think it's best to just get this in and use the
python-oauth that's already in main. And we can switch to poauth for
Karmic+1 after I've had time to fix some issues and stabalize the
