Ah, that's interesting to know.  I'm using a Debian server and it has
nothing later than 2.3.8 packaged.  I see a Debian bug
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=751975 asking for 3.1
to be packaged.

The method you describe is exactly the framework I was hoping to be able
to use, certainly.
