Thing is, some (perhaps demented:-) distros will have the patched zlib
installed, but will not have updated the zlib version number (weakness
of rpm package handling stategy there, to say the least.... Has seen
this with older versions of Mandriva). So to keep things as simple as
possible, I think Jules is doing the right thing, more or less.
