I think it should be as both source and image.  (2.2.0-final at least)
It shouldn't be the default..but it should be there.  Maybe with a note
in the description field that it's still not a "official-stable" release
but Linus does say's unless there is a real stupid mistake on his part than nothing will be changed for the 2.2.0 release which will probably come out Monday. (unless there is a stupid mistake).

I say put it in!  It's been in it's version of "frozen" for a while now.
