Yes and no. For future compatibility, we should do that and should have done
that for 5.12 already. But doing so means the binaries so produced won't run
on older, still supported Linux distributions.

Not yet. Thanks for bringing it up, we'll have to make a decision. I'll bring
this up with the release team to figure out if there's a limitation in the
build servers (if it's the same environment that builds 5.9, for example).
Then we'll make a recommendation.
