Of course, I completly agree with you. But, as there are possibly some other
packages, which could use such symlink-to-the-version-I-want functionality,
I think we should work on something more general, available for all
packages, so other packages can also benefit. Such temporary fixes, as the
one you provided, won't really help much IMO.
