No gotcha here.  I don't expect users to handle the issues.  Either the
users in question want the opportunity to run the latest software in an
integrated distro and so choose to run Fedora or they want to have a
stable platform on which to deploy their own work and therefore they use
CentOS/RHEL/Debian Stable.

There's a right tool for any job and a wrong tool.  Using your crescent
wrench to hammer nails is possible but not very satisfying.
