Then we will be incompatible with upstream. Upstream has decided to
stick to 0.5.x. This means that all the people using SPICE today are
using this version. Do we really want to be incompatible with others
distros and custom builds?

I think we should be reasonable, since Fedora and RHEL already decided
to stick to 0.5.x, that means they are going to maintain it as well.
What really prevent us from making it available in Debian?

One day, perhaps if the reasons are good enough, spice upstream will
decide to use a higher version of the bitstream. But right now, there
is no frozen bitstream, and it would be crazy to just take arbitrarily
another version, they did it once, it's enough.

Please correct me if I am missing something here.
