Hmm 0.4.12 as I said is the *stable* version, 0.4.93 is the
_experimental_ one, maybe 0.4.12 version lack of features that gobby
0.5.0 will have (0.4.9X branch is suposed to be the next 0.5.0 release
IIRC when it will be finished, once again is a non-stable software).

I don't like the idea of packaging experimental stuff, 0.4.93 is a
snapshot of -not yet finished- software, but it's just my opinion.

Thoughts of other Devs/TU/Users are apreciated :).
