this is the sole reason why I disabled that option actually. I have 
nothing against the owners of each package maintaining snapshots e.d. in 
their public_html on the server though, although I do have to enlarge 
/home on espresso ... I still have 20gb unpartitioned so that should not 
be a problem atm.

However there's some other stuff going on that might change things a 
bit. I'll have to wait on that. You'll hear more later.
