Besides, what you're calling out of date is still considered fairly
untested by upstream, at least with glibc. Read the README in glibc-2.4.
Even though it is released, doesn't make it a sure thing that it is
stable. The glibc devs say they're still planning on releasing a 2.3.7
with bug fixes - and *that* is what it appears they consider to be most
