I'll probably cave and just compile 3.9 soon enough but it's so untidy
to have to do that every time I install a system and I'm not up to
being maintaining packages yet (and they wouldn't take a 'beta'
anyway). Is there no way in 3.6 to say "you! go float yourself!"? I
guess I could read /tag/sel/index and give the toggle command or not
based on that...
