Thank you both for your responses. I appreciate the meaning of
"Unsupported," and I'm sure there must be some history behind
this, but do you mind if I ask why? It seems as though being
able to build and distribute packages easily is a very useful
feature. Was the dropping of support for upset just a push
to move to genini (without any documentation), or is there
really some other approach that I should be pursuing?
