So ubuntu is moving from the only slightly broken and very slow software 
center to something more broken  :P   (I already had trouble finding 
packages I know are there in SWC)

Fixing this means lots of tiny changes to almost every package that will 
not impove the running of the application just so we can load it. On the 
up side, it should make searching for the packges that do work easier.

This is why we still include synaptic in Studio. I will note that SWC 
can't properly install jackd as an example, and probably other sw as well.

This why we have ubuntustudio-controls  :)
