# Masked for removal in 90 days.
# Multiple hard to fix and time consuming maintenance problems:
#  - history of bugs (bug #304527, bug #335101, bug #347175,
#    bug #349249, bug #356609)
#  - upstream's binary builds cannot be used on Gentoo
#    as easily as other -bin packages (ubuntu-specific
#    library names that require compatibility symlinks,
#    bundling libraries, mirror/redistribution policy, and so on)
#  - dependencies for the -bin package are harder to manage;
#    often we have source compatibility, but not binary compatibility
