I had the same concerns in the past. Apparently the idea is to use whatever
is in 42.2:Update. Unless there are bugs or security holes to fix.

I think it could be updated now, but one should find a good reason for the mr.
I also think the mpv in Essentials built for 42.2 ought to be wiped clean
so to avoid this confusion.
