If it was done it would have to be an unofficial package living just
here on the Alioth repository, but I think there might be lots of
cascading dependencies which would also need to be backported, making
the job to hard to be worth it. Of course this could just be a
perception issue and one dedicated person can make all the difference
if they are stubborn enough... just depends where the effort/payoff
ratio falls. Here it might be lots of effort for little perceived
