the version in ubuntu precise (and travis-ci)

thanks, this is something I was wondering, even if I couldn't easily find
when they were introduced.

thanks, I committed this on the upstream pull request, giving you the commit authorship.

While I like the solution, I'm really worried about backporting hedgewars,
(and this is why I took 55 as separator), because that way I wasn't changing the "current" behaviour.

Now the next backports will take some new functionalities, while before they were using a deprecated code...

This sounds scary to me, but if upstream applies the patch I have one year until the next backport need
(I'm backporting hedgewars without the above fixes for this new release)

let me know if you can reassure me because the changes are "safe" or whatever :)
