So now everything is working on hardy except for the fact that stdeb 0.3 
has to be modified to remove the --single-version-externally-managed 
option. So can you just create a 0.3a version with this small change and 
that could go out to the repositories and be available by default to 
everyone. There does not seem to be any impact that I can see in making 
this change and since so many people create their own install classes 
this would actually prevent conflicts.
