Ack, I can do that -- I'm just hesitant to make too many changes without
some consultation first.

It should have no impact on the current Debian toolchain, as it's fully
supported there.

Great, thanks!

Yeah, we actually wouldn't have been able to use it in Ubuntu proper
either (without some manual build steps) -- but having it there meant I
could at least test my changes locally, etc.

Thanks for the prompt feedback, I'll start pushing my changes to the git
repositories if I hear no objections in the meanwhile!
