Mike, is it possible to say something like `do first <a>; if
you still get EFS erros, try <b>; else try <c>'; where my
proposal would just be <a> or <b>? Maybe <c> is `fetch and
install an EFS update manually'?
Well, now that I think about it; maybe manual fetch and
install is the only realistic workaround.
We really need to do things by HTTP. This will solve all these problems.
What will this involve?
