I agree that this would be ideal.  But as of now the latest version I
have found on a mirror is 1.6.16 (on the aforementioned Debian
repository) while the latest version is 1.6.17.  I could use the source and add the one on as soon as it is updated
to the latest version.

Thank you for your feedback.  I apologise for not adhering to the
guidelines; this is my first contribution to a free software project.
If it is enough to add just the source for the time being I
will submit my patch as soon as possible and according to the manual.
