What about switching to the invisible islands version ?

- It is directly used by Fedora, Debian (>Jessie) [1],[2]
- changelog (leaks,bugs or behaviour fixes + ABI changes) with terminal variants:
see announces at [3] (example seem to be C++ bindings fixes not in original 5.9)
- last release 2011, next official 5.x/6.x seems unclear [4]
- collecting patches from various sources places more burden on OpenWrt project
(Example: that rxvt-unicode patch is outdated in OpenWrt and Fedora)
