Pinning a comment telling people how to get the default expected User
Experience in a non-default way, sucks.

The package maintainer thinks that the average user will dislike the
resulting default default user experience, will experience crashes, will
experience missing features, etc. -- and as a result the package
maintainer has *flatly* refused under any and all circumstances to
continue maintaining the package that he has, apparently, been
maintaining to many peoples' satisfaction, for the last four years.

Apparently, he *really* thinks that that is a bad idea and an inferior
mesa-git experience.
