Incidentally, "about two months" is actually a very short
time between upstream-release and mandating it for QEMU.
Consider that our glib dependency is 2.12, which was released
in 2006, and we're still debating whether to move forward
to 2.24 (released in 2010). Distro release schedules are
often on a scale of years, especially for long-term-support
distros, and we want to support as wide a range of them
as we reasonably can.
