I'm sure your decision will either,
1. work perfectly and make your jobs much easier, or
2. create a massive blob of RC bugs tomorrow.
Since you guys knows what you are doing, #1 is by far more likely. In
either case, I'll be installing the friendlier-upstream version tonight.
I wish you luck with the new upstream. Let's hope the change will
finally fix some of the old, old problems with glibc.
