Hi Myles,
thanks for reporting this, but probably merging here is not a good idea.

Your *-bzr provides a vcs version of the software.
Having stable releases too is not a problem.

You mentioned there are some issues with building the stable release of dolfin,
well probably someone else could take care of them and fix em.
Having a quick look at your pastebin (in a dolfin comment), seems like it is
a gcc 4.7 issue. Btw, rapidly searching I've got confirmation and found this to
be already reported and solved yet on the dolfin BTS [1].

Here is the commit patch that solves the issue [2].

Now, your choice. If you mind, you may re-adopt those packages by applying the
patch. Otherwise, just do not care about em.
