arguably that's clearly way outside of where Moblin borrowed
some packages from Fedora ;-)

I have offered before, and that offer still stands, to help in this
regard. And I have been working with various folks from Fedora (as well
as other distros) on this. 

It's not like there's any secrets; the LPC presentation I think
lines out pretty well what process worked for us. It's just that the
project will/motivation needs to be there to make this an important
item, and then move relatively fast across a wide range of things to
make them not-suck.
