I imagine that is the "preferred method" for *future* patches, but
since Canonical is after World Domination Now (or at least a market
share that requires units greater than nano-percents to measure), they
had better not lose history this way.  I advise you to assume that
this is just a bug (albeit a rather distressing one) that will be
fixed in due time, until somebody says otherwise.
