I have to admit that this message has always annoyed me. There's probably
something lost in the translation, or a culture difference or something...
Either that, or I'm still holding a grudge for the war ;-)
But dpkg telling me sorry doesn't bother me. It damned well apologize for
not fetching the new package from cvs and building it just for me if there
isn't a new one in the deb archive yet :-)
