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.
