[texhax] Any idea why powerdot would get downgraded post-TeXLive 2015?

Hello texhax --

I just tried to build a presentation on a new machine with TeXLive 2017
(actually MacTeX 2017) and was surprised that the powerdot presentation
didn't properly render correctly even though it was working fine on an
older machine with TeXLive 2015. That's when I discovered that TeXLive 2017
(and TeXLive 2018) are using a version of powerdot that is several years
older than the latest version (and the version in TeXLive 2015).

Does anyone know why TeXLive now prefers the older and broken powerdot from
2008 instead of the newer version from 2014?

Thanks --
