as far as I'm concerned on the Debian side (Julien can correct me if
I'm going haywire), we can always build stuff from git if needed, but
having specific versions (that include rcs) helps a lot when trying to
figure out which stuff works or breaks, or when trying to decide what
to upload, when, and where.

And since I maintain some tinderboxes, I would also welcome having
locked-step changes applied altogether when possible.
