Hello Michael,

Thanks for reporting your concerns about this. Fortunately, this is
currently being addressed and you'll be able to read a bit more about on
Dustin's blog at [1], as he is currently finalizing a solution for intrepid.

Please feel free to try it out and report any issues or suggestions you
may have.
