I know I've said this before, but I don't like the idea of the PPA shipping
Ubuntu's patches, especially the libnotify stuff.  There are two reasons I don't
like it.  The first is that (in my opinion) it says we are endorsing Ubuntu's
gratuitous modifications (libnotify et al).  The second is that the PPA carrying
downstream patches is completely inconsistent with the RPM repos provided on for Fedora and CentOS/RHEL distributions, which ship no downstream

That said, I'm not the one maintaining either the RPM or PPA repos, so I don't
really have room to complain.
