Being on the edge is unavoidable if we actually want to use meson any
time soon. If we wait for it to be in even 1/2 of the distros we target,
then we will be delaying conversion by 1-2 years. I don't think that's
desirable, when updating to new enough meson is not much more than runing
"pip install meson --user"
