Hopefully this is not another attempt at an official Debian package of
Isabelle. Many years ago, some people tried it, but it always caused
more problems than it solved. And today the system is more complex and
more easily destroyed by packaging it.

These days I see big and complex products doing it our way: providing a
fully integrated distribution for end-users that by-passes OS package
