one good reason would be because that is the version that will allow
this program to compile properly

that is the very reason why software releases are versioned - if only
the newest version of every software was useful, then there would not
need to be any versions - we would all just rock whatevr is the current
HEAD today of the git master of each tool and dependency like our golang
and javascript friends do, cross our fingers, and hope for the best :)
