just some points to add to the discussion, IMHO:
- ATM we have both the version in SBo, fltk (the 1.1 branch) and
fltk13 (the 1.3 branch);
- to be fair we have also fltk2 (something like an alpha, a subversion
snapshot), that seems needed for flpsed;
- usually we have not cared for what is in /extra (look at java/jdk,
for example): if it's a dependency for something in our repository we
have provided it also if present there;
- we have a lot of stuff depending of fltk-1.1.x, I have some doubt
that everything could be patched to build with 1.3.x;
- version naming is really up to the mantainer: let's see what Luca
thinks about it (as he maintains both the versions).
