That's not a useful argument.  There is a huge difference between what
RHEL would ship, and a conservative bugfix update.  RHEL typically
requires a paying customer contacting support about an issue, escalation
from there, 3 levels of ACK/NACK decisions, and finally gobs of QA on a
package before it ever goes out.  Vastly different than what we do in
Fedora, even for conservative updates.
