i strongly believe that there should be only one FAQ. in the stuff i've
written, i've tried to identify things that differ between 21.4 and
21.5, although i may have messed some things up. if you're concerned
about divergence, then we should just come up with a clearer way of
distinguishing stuff relevant to only one version (e.g. a [21.4] or
[21.5] tag in the subject).
adrian, you may be right that there should be a stub in etc/PACKAGES
rather than its removal; i'm just concerned about having lots of such
stubs all over the place.
