I'd rather have "not at all".

Ubuntu has been carrying broken mc for 2 consecutive versions if the
memory isn't cheating on me, and it took me quite some effort to get it
to the point where it was at least usable.

The upcoming release is going to be LTS in as far as I understand and if
there is no 99% certainty that the update will be flawless I wouldn't
rush into pushing it out.

Yes, is buggy, no one argues against that, but it is usable.

Alas, it is (kind of) :-(
