Hmm.  That sentence is pretty accurate, so why should we remove it?

It is not a guarantee, of course, that all changes to your system that
you make with apt-get will be good ones.  There could be a warning
about that, but I think it should be pretty obvious that when you muck
around in your system as root that you need to be careful, no? ;)

Then again, having a package in the official maemo mistral repository
that will break your device is very bad, too.  "Someone should do
something about this".
