Sure. But at the same time the word "stable" in the expression
"stable version" ought to mean something, I guess.

My point is this is a matter of personal judgement. If the change is
going to be "too" disruptive (and that's a maintainer call)
then maybe having a "Fedora-blessed" repository like this great one
could be a possible way to go. At the same time, the package could be
updated straight to Rawhide, of course.

I was not discussing that. Those changes are cool. I agree. But we also have
to take in account the drawbacks that come with that coolness and strike
a balance so that stable distro users aren't too disrupted in
their workflows.
