Updating it would be nice, it's on my list of outdated packages for a
long while already. I don't know if a rebuild is required: brlapi.so is
dlopened from the python module included in orca. I don't know why they
bumped .soname, but if updating brltty breaks the braille module in
orca, it will still be broken after a rebuild anyways.

Didn't we all have permission to create directories in /other/? I never
use sudo to do so.
