I generally agree that we should consider generally how easy it is to get a
package, regardless of whether it is built from source or not. However, for
lots of folks an arbitrary PPA may viable for security reasons.

Anyways, this is all speculative. i'd rather discuss this with a concrete
proposal to bump the version up, what we get in exchange for that, and the
implications it has on folks.
