Hmmm.  The number of unsolicited reports I saw and received -- both from 
upgraders and those who didn't even know it was happening, seemed much
higher than would support that.  When you're upgrading several hundred 
million devices, the error rate doesn't have to be that high...

But the things you *should* do are still a larger list than the things
you *must* do; tragedy of the commons and like that.  Apple could *easily*
have handled it better.

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.
