Now I have tried it!  It works for me on a fresh 12.04 VM, so I just
committed the change as revision 34.

The script could use one more fix/enhancement that I know of, which is
that if you re-run it after a failure, it exits at the bzr branch
command saying that lubuntu-manual-saucy is already a branch... which is
true, but not an error in these circumstances, so ideally it would
realize that and just update the branch and the continue.

I'm also working with Jason off-list on sorting out some sort of apt
package database issue which is preventing the script from working as it
should on his machine.
