The right thing to do is to fix the problem, not to request an exception. It 
is likely to be voted down. I'm not going to vote for an exception if you 
can't prove that it's truly necessary, and in past precedents, most folks on 
FESCo felt even stronger about this issue than me. And "upstream does it 
that way" is NOT a valid reason, you're supposed to patch the code to use 
the system libraries, it's part of being a maintainer.
