  Hmm, I hadn't thought of that.  But as desirable as that sounds, I
strongly suspect that this would increase the complexity of kernel
building and maintenance for FC4 and beyond.  If there's much demand for
it, it could be picked up by one of the alternative repositories (some
of them, if I'm not mistaken, collectively known as rpmforge, now).
