I was wondering about this a while ago. A PPA or similar external repo
would be very convenient if the Debian situation can't be sorted out,
since there are several post-2.2 features I'd like to use.

I'm not a party to the ongoing standardization efforts and can't speak
about the technical merits of the proposals, but from a user
perspective, Debian seems to be in the wrong here: if putatively not
fully following standards were a general reason for not providing
updates to a package, there would be very few packages left in Debian.

IMO the maintainer should provide updated packages with a default
configuration that keeps to "safe" (same as 2.2?) data formats if they
think the newer formats will be a problem in the future—not hold back
the entire package.
