Sure, but that just backs up my point further. Even in the case where
you have an 'appliance' style setup, you _can_ use distro packages, but
why would you bother? If it's a single-purpose system then you don't get
much benefit from doing so. Does RH base pre-rolled openshift gears on
Fedora or RHEL distribution packages? I don't think so.
