OK, yes, I think I want that. The positives outweigh the negatives.

Whatever is easiest...

Yes, that is one of the big positives to having a package.

OK. We are constantly fixing bugs or adding features, so if someone
"this doesn't work" , our standard answer is "use the latest".

OK. Tell the Debian folks that 2.2 really is much better than 2.0. I've
been using
it for 2+ years now, from when it was 2.1.x and it was consistently better

different matter).
