Best not to at this point, as even with an explicit version check for the
new function, you can still get a warning from meson about using functions
from versions greater than baseline. In this release we have removed most,
if not all, existing warnings and I'd rather not add any back in.

Suggest replacing the fixme with a NOTE or TODO, since it's not a bug that
needs to be fixed, rather a future enhancement once we update our meson
