The .deb for Sage is outdated.

CTAN's copy of SageTeX is pretty current. I've noticed that updates to
CTAN happen pretty quickly; I'm concerned here about how long it would
take for updates to filter into TL or MikTeX, and then into other
packaging systems, etc.

It seems like it would be nice if SageTeX stayed on CTAN, but was not
included in TL. I don't know how reasonable or easy that arrangement is,
