Oh.  I took a chance and wrote without verifying that it actually 
worked.  Good that you figured it out and succeeded the merge.  And even 
better that you shared your findings :-)

Would be nice if someone grabbed the most recently updated README.Source 
(not sure if it was from the sugar or the sugar-core package - I believe 
I posted an update here a month or two ago) and put it on a wiki page of 
its own below http://wiki.debian.org/Sugar somewhere - and extend the 
text with this more seldomly needed but then quite helpful routine.

Then we can refer to that wiki page in README.Source of all 
Sugar-related packages, instead of duplicating the files as I have done 
in the past :-)
