People encounter a lot of broken packages in the wild which they 
normally be protected from by their distro. Since we're a DIY-project 
and not a distro, it's a good idea to educate them in the book how they 
must fix it themselves (or where they can find patches). They can create 
patches for themselves and share them at patches at
