I think we should leave that there for awhile, though I agree it's
likely that the final decision will be "no change".

There had been a section on the page about information we needed to
communicate to third-party authors.  Someone seems to have removed
that, but that seems like where this belongs.

It's a bit weird though, because UpdateControlFile should always update
in place; why would there be any risk of out of disk space?  I would
like to find out exactly what happened, though I have no clear ideas
how to investigate it.
