I can sort out the ppa build in the next couple of days if no one gets there first. The only issue is that builds with mesh enabled will not work nativity for any stable ubuntu release because cairo 12 only appears in ubuntu 12.10. We will either need to drop support for all stable versions of ubuntu or adopt the packaging of Cairo 12 in the ppa.

It would be possible to package two separate builds independently but it might get a bit messy.

I would leave it up to the PPA users... I shouldn't hurt as long as
users realize that it is experimental. I don't suppose one can have two
builds, one with it enabled (and named inkscape_experimental) and one
not.
