The main issue is the impact on people using jhbuild on "last stable
distribution" such as Ubuntu 12.04 or Fedora 17.  Does pulseaudio build
from jhbuild on those systems?

Actually even trickier, can you build programs against the pulseaudio
2.0 libraries, but run "gnome-shell --replace" on a system which is
running an older pulseaudio daemon?

(We can punt on these issues of course, as we have in the past in some
 cases, but anything that breaks jhbuild on stable distributions has a
 serious negative impact on the workflow of a lot of contributors)
