We should raise the severity of the bug to grave (better than serious,
since it's a usability issue, not a policy violation) and upload a new
0.0.18 version with the minimal patch.  I think the release team will be
happy with that.

Given that this will be fairly temporary, I would use the simple-patchsys
class in CDBS, which should be up to applying a single patch without much
difficulty.  Let me know when that's set and I'll do the upload.
