That *is* the documentation.

Yes, dismissing a valid point with ad hominem assertions is generally 
considered impolite, at least where I am from. Let me remind you that 
you do not know me; making assertions about what is "just like" me is 
presumptuous and arrogant.

I brought to attention the fact that compromising the integrity of the 
package management system will result in an inconsistent setup. That is 
not criticising you as a person (unlike what you just did); it is 
trying to inform you that the method you are using may be the cause of 
many of your problems -- mix files of incompatible versions and all 
bets are off.

You are way, way out of line with your presumptuous pissing contest 
here. How much people know (disregarding the problems of quantifying 
that) is generally a product of their willingness to learn and their 
age, and what they know generally depends on their interests and 
experiences. I am sure there are many things you know that I do not. 
Similarly, I know many things that you do not. I fail to see the 
relevance of that, though.
