Just following up after educating myself as to what Drush is.  I stand
by my previous assertions.  One being, pick your poison, distro or other
means, and never cross the streams.  Second being, as convenient as

#apt-get install drupal drush

I find in practice that it takes more time to undo the settings made to
my system that I *don't* want (server-wide /alias, root of default
vhost, etc) than it would have been to download the source and install
it how *I* want it installed.  Plus, you'll need to "pin" or otherwise
avoid apt either mixing some things up, or giving you nasty errors about
