Well, that's not really true. 2.0 is unsupported. I don't support anything
but the latest versions of the supported branches.

I have no experience with Debian, but from my perspective that's why at
least on Red Hat I don't see any material advantage to getting the packages
into the distribution. Installing the RPM takes 30 seconds.
