The "two heads are better than one" release.

This is the first build on our way to what will ultimately become the
12.1.0 release. Its based on rawhide and the testing I did on my
XO-1.5 provides all basic working functionality including Sugar,
GNOME, networking, camera etc. gnome-shell with associated bits to
test running it using SW rendering isn't included in this release but
I'll work to get this in place for the next build.

Some of the details of this release are:
- Fedora rawhide (it will become Fedora 17)
- Sugar 0.95.2
- gnome 3.3.2
- NetworkManager 0.9.2
- evince 3.3.2 with upstreamed go-i bindings for Read
- kernel 3.1.1
- OFW q3b23 for XO 1.5
- OFW q2f05 for XO 1
- Xorg Xserver 1.12 RC1

Known issues:
- no pretty boot (hold down the Check key to see output)
- Browse doesn't work
- Read doesn't work
- Help doesn't work
