Hmm, yes and no. I fully agree that I should go as latest as possible, but
if - like with ICU by the introduction of a namespace - the API has
changed, the build will fail. I'd like to minimize those failing builds
upfront... :-)

So, I'd like to have a page telling me "was build using versions ..." to
have a safe fallback, and a base to judge if the latest version of an
external library might work or not.

Cheers, Rainer
