Yesish. Yes, you should absolutely update them, but you should also
check all their reverse build dependencies to ensure that we don't cause
FTBFSs. Yo, sECuRE - is RATT ready for team use?

trigger FTBFSs -- upstreams in Goland seem to break API all the time, so
we should be a bit careful in leau of versioning.
