But, if we always upgrade setup.rb before packaging, there's no problem,
right? That's what I meant. If we upgrade, most problems just go away...

Yes, it seems reasonable. Anyway, can we just call clean and distclean for

patch (although there won't be no need, in that case), it should work with
both versions, right?
