Pragmatically, because 367 is an update path from 361 as distinct from a
separate driver path. If I hold the package and its dependencies, I have
to wait for notice of a possible fix and keep hoping nothing else breaks
as a result. Switching to Gallium and testing the next nvidia driver
release is easier, albeit with a performance penalty.
Philosophically, 367 fixes a couple of security issues in 361.
