To do that, I would need either:

 a) a solid upstream committment to support it in the future - ie,
    fixing significant bugs that arise in it


 b) enough time to backport the fixes myself

I don't have either right now.

I have to consider things like "If I have to pick one of these, which
would I rather be running for the next two years?".
