It is normally avoided to add dependencies within the stable release
stream, however in this case the existing code would cease to work
(since the API was being turned off), so it was appropriate to add

The only requirement we insisted on was that the minimum version
requirements was no newer than that in the latest ubuntu lts
release (which is most of our users)
