I think that's probably similar for most users of these distros like these
- they're using them because they want a known environment which doesn't
change except for fixes for security issues, so even if they'd like a newer
version of Xapian than the distro might ship, they probably don't want
to update their Xapian packages each time there's a new Xapian release.
