Yes, I think so. The alternative is everyone goes off half-cocked and
you have a situation such as occurred about a year ago with the
CAN-2005-0202 issue <http://www.list.org/security.html>. In this case,
someone developed a patch which SuSE pushed out through their
automatic update process, but the patch was dependent on a part of the
Python library that SuSE didn't install by default and the dependency
wasn't noted. This caused a lot of grief at the time. See
