True, but by now we're mostly there. Xapian is a bit of a kludge because it
doesn't look like 1.4 will be released in time, and that's required for
apt-xapian-index. But Ubuntu has python3-xapian1.3 and I have a branch that
makes a-x-i work (well, pass its test suite <wink>) against Python 2.7 with
Xapian 1.2, and 3.4/3.5 with Xapian 1.3.

If I'm not mistaken, Robert Ancell took a action item to see if straight-up
OAuth could be used so ubuntu-sso-client could just be dropped.
