While I appreciate this is a work around, is it worth committing
(especially to stable-queue) in the short term?

We'll likely push out stable-queue very soon. If you've got a fairly
recent snapshot for Ubuntu already, then bumping the version to 0.9.23
should be uncontroversial (tho' version bumps may still be banned by
policy regardless).

What do you think?
