Still, there's not normally that much difference between the packaging
for one version and for the next. I can't imagine that it would take
much time to throw together a package for 8.3 plr based on what you're
using for 8.2. All modern package-based distros make this pretty easy.
The only reason not to do it would be if you're buying support from
a vendor who will only support specific package versions...
