Would be a good idea.  Shipping pkg_166 to anywhere (/dev or /dev-il)
as it currently is is a very bad idea (since it doesn't have the zone
hooks in place to actually function properly, even then)

If it's a small amount, and you're aware of the bugs you might be
hiding (actually, the bugs you're hiding are mostly from not using a
ref repo at all), I guess I think it's merely silly, rather than a bad

The problem is that oi-build needs a pkg much newer than _151, but
pkgs sufficiently new don't actually work properly on OI (though they
nearly do).

I guess you're not adding to that problem.
