Auch!  I had grabbed the extended service date and was thinking it was
still viable through 2022.  Looking at the various dependencies shows
that Bionic (18.04) might be the earliest Ubuntu with all the needed
modules.  I think I'll repackage for that and see how that goes.

Any feeling on how many are using the earlier versions of Ubuntu?
