 I'll have a look.

 Of course testing is needed.  But my feeling is keeping jumps between 
versions of auxiliary tools as small as possible should give us less 
breakage at a time.  I think it may be quite a reasonable idea to check 
whether the tools might be updated every time we are in stage 1.

 OK, I'll raise the priority for this task.  At least problems that I have 
already discovered will be known if not fixed this way.
