When it comes down to it, things that need fixing in supported products
(which is what ubuntu is) get attention before unsupported. Since the
wait on supported things can be long enough, i'm guessing that theres an
even bigger wait for ports.

If we had people who worked closely with upstreams -dev, -motu and -bugs
people and provide patches/fixes to go with the bug reports, i'd be much
more open to the idea. (it would allow us to poke people to fix bugs
sooner rather then waiting for upstream to fix it).
