Ok so there is a bug to fix in e17, what do you do ?

Or a security issue like the one I found ( and that should be fixed I
hope soon, after reporting it 3 times upstream ).

if the answer is "we ship a newer snapshot who requires to rebuild
everything regarding e17 because there is no guarantee of binary
stability ( ie, ABI wise ) and that will introduce unwanted changes",
then the problem is here. 

Unless the snapshot are bugfixes only ( and they are not ), that's a
problem. That's already annoying to have to do it for chrome, firefox
and thunderbird to not happily increase our burden with a whole desktop

So far, I have asked the question 3 times. No one answered at all.

Also, please do not top post.
