But I find knowing there's a newer version is /really/ useful.  It's all too
easy to miss that someone else has updated your pet package with good stuff
and plough on loosing their changes in the mists of time.  I vote for
keeping the check-in.  It doesn't stop you form committing but has the huge
advantage of knowing that a merge might be in your future.
