Apologies. The original question that started this thread was on why
the upgrade was trying to remove Abiword. It wasn't you, it was

No, I'm not a developer, and I never told you to shut up. Let's please
keep this civil. I know it's frustrating. I've been there, honestly,
many times in 11-12 years I've been running Linux.
I really, really don't mind at all that you think the upgrade process
is broken. Please continue using Ubuntu any way you like. I stepped
into this discussion just to try and help, because I've done the
dist-upgrade thing from Warty to Hoary and now Hoary to Breezy. That's
all. Please take this dispute up with the developers.
