Agreed, that's why I like the idea of GR being maint by default (so
that dependencies might not change that easily [hoping that maint is
always tested with the minimum required versions]) and letting users
who might want to risk the breakage just choose their version to their
liking -- obviously, if you take a different version than the recipe
maintainer thought would be right for you, you're leaving the safe
path, and no one can really help you there if you have funky version
