And HekaFS aside, I could also make the case that we don't want people 
to blindly update from glusterfs-3.2.x to glusterfs-3.3.x.

Another option I'd be willing to consider is leaving glusterfs-3.2.x 
alone, i.e., as glusterfs-3.2.x-y.fc16, but release glusterfs-3.3.x as 
glusterfs33, i.e. glusterfs33-3.3.x-1.fc16.
