Forwarding upstream comments.
I think now we have two options:
- Start working on PV 3.12 and getting rid of convenient copy of VTK.
I do not think it will be too difficult since VTK 5.8.0 was released
not too long ago
- Mark that PV 3.12 is shipped with convenient copy of VTK, and only
upload without convenient VTK when upstream make the first move...

While it's possible to enable such an advanced option, such a feature
is fraught with complications until we sync VTK and ParaView release.
Through conversations with folks here, we are indeed trying to achieve
that i.e. synchronize VTK and ParaView releases.
VTK's cmake rules (and consequently ParaView's CMake rules) are being
overhauled for VTK 6.0/ ParaView 4.0. So this would be a good
opportunity to start supporting such a build-time option.
