	Couldn't it be possible for cases like this to offer a replacement
slackbuild ? With a proper disclaimer stating that it is altering the stock
stable slackware.

	I'm also stuck with Kallithea, at almost the first version I uploaded,
because mercurial is too old.
Admitedly it gives me time to enhance the Slackbuild to make it easier to use in
the future, but anyway, it's stuck at 0.4.1 even though 0.6.2 is out.

	For gtk3 and glib, it's probably too much core to be replaced without
side effects.
But for something like python-setuptools, I have to wonder why not having an SBo
updated version, it won't break any existing slackware package.

	This is just a thought, not a request in any way.
