While I have little sympathy with those responsible for the breakage as 
well (it was not tested very well), it wasn't due to "running ahead" but 
due to an improper patch. See [1] for details.
The "really bad hack breaking updates of unrelated packages" (i.e. 
changing the symlink behind the back of the package managment system) 
was done by myself (in full awareness that this might cause problems), 
not Ubuntu.
