Sorry, but no. Just no, no, no and no. Those binary dumps are horrible. They
are essentially just dumping 2/3 of an outdated(*) Linux system to /opt.

Pirate Praveen is doing an awesome job of packaging this very complex piece
of software in a proper way and I at least am very grateful for this.
Even if it is only available in unstable, it's a lot better than those
blobs provided upstream.


- Postgres 9.6
- openSSL 1.0.0 (??!)
- Python 3.4
... the list goes on
