It doesnt have to be part of the base installation. Would it be possible 
to have the compatibility libraries within the legacy group selected by 
default. Users who do not require it can explicitly deselect it during 
the installation or do a yum groupremove easily. Others get more 
compatibility and external packages working better until a more 
automated message using dbus or something is designed to cover such 
cases better
