Why is this such a big problem to fix?
Wouldn't it be EXTREMELY simple just to create a simple radio button on 
the ShipIt page that lets you choose either Warty or Hoary?  There are 
certainly some people that would rather have the TESTED stability of 
Hoary (just as there is a small group of people that use Debian 
This isn't such a big deal.  A radio button could be put in in <30 
seconds, lolz.  Oh wait, I forgot, you have to ACTUALLY open up Gedit 
or something to edit the HTML.  Oh no!

Is there something I'm missing here?
