I've just cherry-picked 0f3be6ca4 for now. We are in deep freeze for
stretch, so I want to avoid more invasive changes (this needs to be
acked by the release team, still)

There will most likely be a backport of newer versions at some point for
stretch, though. So you can get it from there if you need any of the
changes listed above besides 0f3be6ca4.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
