Well... You managed to find one of the bigger once. That's probably an example 
of a worst-case scenario.

As for manpower; it falls on the package maintainer to make sure versions are 
bumped were needed. I.e. not really more manpower, but probably more work and 
testing for maintainers.

Jeroen Ruigrok said he was working on a portupgrade like utility to "end the 
heat wave" as he described it. I, for one, would like to cheer him on. I think 
it's sorely missed.
